Bærer vs holder explanation please
Bærer = Carry. Holder = hold. The first implies moving from one place to another. The second involves staying in one place.
What about moron holder på barnet? Its obviously unnecessary, but is it awkward?
The meaning would be different, it could no longer mean that she has the child in her arms. It would be that she either has a hand on the child or that she is not willing to let it go.
That would be “The mother is holding on to the child.”.
