I thought that since "sin" is a definite article it would make sense to use "egne" rather than "egen"?
Although "sin" does make the object definite and would usually put the adjective between it and the noun into its "e-form", "egen/eget/egne" and "anden/andet/andre" are exceptions to this rule
So "egen" and "anden" get the "form" of the noun (like a t-form before a t-word, the n-form before an n-word, like in an indefinite situation) even after sin/sit/sine?
Yes, it also works with all possessive pronouns ("Mit eget hus", "hans egen bil") and in the case of "anden" it also is true with the definite article ("Den anden pige", "Det andet dyr")
Ah, okay! Mange tak! :)
Oh, cool, I understand then... Tusind tak!
I wish there were a way to save replies like this for later reference.
Somehow I read "the crab eats it's own plate", and with this being Duolingo that didn't seem off...
