Particle verbs and other animals

Hi.

Would anyone know a good online resource that looks at Swedish particle verbs? I haven't completed my Swedish tree yet but I've looked down the list of the ones I haven't done and there doesn't seem to be any lessons regarding particle verbs.

I'm also trying (unsuccessfully) to find a list of animals in Swedish, that includes the male, female and young of that animal. I've searched online but my search powers have failed me (damn you, powers!)

I think that this might be a good resource to share with everyone also.

Best wishes all. Vicky

I start with the animals of the farm:

<pre>| english | general | male | female | young | |---------|---------|--------|--------|-------------| | cow | ko | tjur | ko | kalv | | horse | häst | hingst | sto | föl | | sheep | får | bagge | tacka | lamm | | chicken | höns | tupp | höna | kyckling | | pig | gris | galt | sugga | griskulting | | goat | get | bock | get | killing | </pre>

Writing these I realize that I don't actually know the English words for many of these. Help with these is appreciated.

I've written a little bit about particle verbs in Present 3 here https://www.duolingo.com/skill/sv/Verbs:-Present-3
We teach relatively few in the course, as compared to how frequent they are in real Swedish, this is for two reasons: they aren't always very easy to translate into English, and (probably the main reason) Duo's system isn't really optimized for words like that so it was a bit clunky to get them into the course.
