I'm sure someone noted this before, but I'm hearing "em kvinne". Is that just how you pronounce it?
I agree. When our pronouncing lady says the whole "sentence" I hear "en", but when she says "en" separately I hear "em". Is that correct?
That is not how you pronounce it, but the m and n is very similar and can be hard tell which is which especially when you are discussing those.
From the notes for the lesson I understood that feminine nouns can be treated as masculine ones. So "kvinne" is more commonly used with the male gender signifier "en" than with the female one "ei" ?
Norwegian gender signifiers are not very strict when it comes to the female gender. You can use both "Ei" and "En". Allthough you can't use "Ei" on male or neuter.
Do all feminine nouns end in e? Not saying all nouns that end in e are feminine, but you have kvinne, jente, suppe, skilpadde, and krabbe. Takk!
The reason many feminine norwegian words ends with an "e" (but not all) is because a lot of the language is taken from the german language (and the other way) in german (as you know) words ending with "e" is always feminine.
It isn't because the two languages borrowed from each other, but rather because they share a distant common ancestry. (:
Yes, while they both belong to the Germanic family, Norwegian is North Germanic and German West Germanic (just like English).
I can't continue after this question.. My answer is A woman.. But it keeps saying its wrong?
