"The brothers eat bread."
Translation:Bröderna äter bröd.
If i had not known some Swedish, i would think it said " the breads eat bread
It doesn't seem so, but bröd is of course related to 'bread' and bror to 'brother'. The sources I found say that the words for 'bread' is related to words for 'brewing' (as in 'beer') or the word for 'break' (as in 'breaking off a piece').
Could someone please help me out with the difference between 'äta' and 'äter' and other similar situations. I keep getting mixed up!
