  • Dryck means a drink, as in a liquid for human consumption. Drycker is the plural of dryck.

  • Dricker is present tense of dricka, meaning to drink. Example: han dricker = he drinks.

  • The difference between vatt and vatten is that vatt is missing a syllable. :p Vatten means water. Don't be fooled by the -en ending, vatten is indefinite. The definite is vattnet

    Jag dricker = I drink (infinitive att dricka)

    dryck = drink (noun), beverage

    As for vatt and vatten, I looked it up and there is no such word as vatt. Vatten on the other hand means water. :)


    Thanks guys! You helped me a lot!
