hi, what is the difference between mæt and fuld?


[deactivated user]

    mæt = full (can't eat any more)

    fuld = drunk

    What about a box being full of something?

      You can use either fuld (full) or fyldt (filled)

      In the previous exercise we had "Jeg er fuld" = "I am drunk". Literally "fuld" is "full". To say you can't eat any more you say "Jeg er mæt". It's just like German: "Ich bin voll" = "I am drunk". If you can't eat any more you say "Ich bin satt".

      I read somewhere that a common phrase stating the same condition of non-hunger is "Jeg betakker mig"^^

      The literal meaning of that is around "I politely decline."
