Isn't grønne supposed to be followed by a plural noun? If so, why root instead of roots?
When you have 'den' eller 'det' in front of the noun, the adjective needs the 'e', just like the plural form.
"En rød kat"
"Den røde kat"
It does not matter if the noun is singular or plural
But 'den/det' wouldn't be used with plural. Then it would be 'de', but that requires an e too, so can we just remember to always put an e with these articles?
Is it just me or "rød" and "rod" are pronounced the same
"rød" [ʁɶðˀ] and "rod" [ʁoðˀ] are minimal pairs differing only by the vowel. ɶ is like the RP English "bIRd" or German ö. It's more front than [o].
You can hear them side by side here: http://www.forvo.com/search/r%C3%B8d/da/
That's much better than people..
What is a green root? An unripe carrot?
