Okay, just to make sure i am right about this:
"Gutten spiser eplet sitt" = He is eating his (own) apple.
"Gutten spiser eplet hans" = He is eating his (maybe the father's) apple.
Am I right?
Is there any difference between the meanings of "Gutten spiser eplet sitt" and "Gutten spiser sitt eple" or can I always use both interchangably?
The second sentence can be used to put emphasis on that he is eating his own apple, not somebody else's. (Han spiser sitt eple, ikke hennes.)
The meaning is the same. But notice that the first is more colloquial while the second is a formal expression.
How to determine sex of something? Like, is it Masculine, Feminine or Neuter.
There's no way to tell, you just have to learn every single word and its gender and remember it :)
Shouldn't it be "sin" to match the gender of "gutt", since "sitt" is the neutral form of "sin"?
... and of course the neuter aspect is referring to what the pronoun possesses, not what the pronoun represents. (That one always catches me if I am not paying attention.)
Is the apple the boy's or does it imply another male's apple? I keep getting confused.
Go make it clear for myself: Is this a correct sentence? "Gutten spiser eplet ditt, ikke sitt." (The boy is eating your apple, not his own.)
