  5. "Torsdag är en dag i veckan."

"Torsdag är en dag i veckan."

Translation:Thursday is a day of the week.

May 10, 2015



Can this also be translated as "Thursday is a day in the week?". The whole i/på thing is still a bit confusing

May 10, 2015


You can :) I did and although it suggested the other solution, mine was right :D

In general, all phrases have "swedish style"; meaning, it is in order to keep the swedish language as much as possible to understand it better and to think swedish.

so "i veckan" does not mean "this week" in this context? how would you say "this week"?

December 1, 2016


"I veckan" can mean "this week", but since your sentence is kind of self evident since there's a Thursday every week that would be an unlikely translation. If you really want to unambiguously say "Thursday is a day this week" though, you would say "Torsdag är en dag (i) den här veckan".

i is such a useful word

Could I say "Torsdag är en dag av veckan" ? or "... veckodag"?

November 8, 2015


You cannot say "dag av veckan", Swedish doesn't use "av" the way English uses "of". But you can say "veckodag" here.

"Torsdag är en veckans dag?" is that OK

April 3, 2016


No, we don't say that. We'd use a handy compound noun instead: en veckodag.

What is the difference between: veckan VS. helgen? They do both mean 'the week' don't they?

September 19, 2015


Helgen only reffers to the end of the week. Usually Saturday to Sunday, but there are exceptions where you may use the word långhelg when the weekend is extended during for example a bank holiday.

Monday one day, Tuesday two days, Wednesday when what huh, THURSDAY. It's the THIRD DAY.

Can we say "Torsdag ar en dag pa veckan"?

August 7, 2018


No, we cannot. It's "en dag i veckan" like in this sentence or "en veckodag".

December 6, 2018


Why can't I use pa here?

The 1st word reminds me of a word ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ (lmao)
