What is the diference between både and begge?

[deactivated user]

    When both is an adjective or a pronoun, use "begge":

    • Jeg har begge kager. (I have both cakes.)

    • Kender du Tom og Line? Ja, jeg kender begge. (Do you know Tom and Line? Yes, I know both (of them).)

    When both is a conjunction, use "både". This only pops up in "både ... og ..." = "both ... and ..."

    Si se dice "tanto/así X como Y" en español, se dice "både X og Y" en danés.

    Si se dice "ambos/as" o "los/las dos" en español, se dice "begge" en danés.
