Where is the difference to 'kun'? They can both mean 'just' or 'only', right?
try this link - it was helpful for me.
discusses the difference between the two..
Is there a difference between "boy" and "kid"?
"kid" is gender neutral, "boy" refers to a male child.
Well, that was... silly of me...
An opportunity to reflect on how stereotypical and wrong one's immediate mental image can be when reading a word :-)
She is lucky her son is not just an orangutan. Maybe later, when he grows up.
I put 'My son is barely a boy' and it was rejected, any reason this should be wrong or has it not been added as an answer?
'bare' in Danish does not have the same meaning as 'barely'. 'Bare' means 'just', 'only' or 'merely' in this instance :)
I wrote this out of reflex.
Does this signify both meanings "My son is - not more than - a boy" and "My son - has just become - a boy", if you catch my drift.
