In my experience, hunden velger deg.

Jeg velger ikke thug life

thugs livet velger meg

"Du velger hnnnnn" is what I hear -_-"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MartinPanda

yeah, I wrote 'hun' because the was no 'd' sound at all

Hunden! Jeg velger deg!

Pikachu! Jeg velger deg! (?)

How to make myself remember "velger"? I just can not find an association for this word, every time I see it for the first time.

Why is "You are choosing the dog" not OK.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Iorua

It is now!

I'll mark it next time it comes around.

This is the best thing i have read in a long time


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tudy1311

I wrote the same thing only to find you have already done so.

No, YOU choose the dog!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eredion

Du velger hund - is what I hear.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DissidentRage

Some accents seem to "swallow" that last E, so you hear a slight N at the end.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MartinPanda

and it swallows the 'd' as well, right? i hear Du velger hun(n)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ramaskrik

Is this a description of an act of choosing the dog, or an imperativ (you choose the dog) or both?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/maria.nils

Formally speaking it's not an imperative, but you can still use this sentence with an imperative sense. It can also be descriptive.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Robbadob

Would you be able to say "Du velger hunden" in an imperative tone or just in English? I thought that the Norwegian would have to be "Velg hunden" without the -er.

Ok and how indeed to know what do I hear: 'hun' or 'hunden' :))
