whats the difference between smutsig and smutsiga?
The first one is singular (common gender) and the second is plural (both genders).
Is there a reason why the gender-neutral pronoun "sin" can't be used here? (Even if it's somewhat less precise?)
Yes, the subject must be present in the phrase for sin to be used, and hon is not in the sentence here.
Got it - thanks!
Why is it "hennes kläder" and not "henna kläderna" if it's "her clotheS"? Is it because it's a singular word in Swedish? Or did I get this plural thing all wrong?
Kläder = clothes, kläderna = the clothes
