What is the difference between "det" and "den".
I know this is quite late but, hopefully, it helps someone else who is stuck with this. I believe that "Det" is used for neuter nouns or for things where the gender is unknown and "Den" is used for masculine/feminine things.
So would, "Det er mitt" be proper if the thing that is "mine" has an unknown gender? I'm really confused by this subject.
Could you also say "Den er mi?" since "den" is m/f?
Does this imply that the subject is necessarily masculine? Or is masculine the default if the gender is undetermined?
It implies that the subject is singular and masculine or feminine.
