In Russian, we have something similar to "sin, si, sitt, sine" only with one difference. This form always relates to the subjects and can be used not only with 3rd person pronoun but with I,you, etc. Does it make sense in Norwegian but we say like "Jeg har katten sin", which is translated "I have my (own) cat".
I like Norwegian more and more.
I have a question about JENTA, I didn't get how the plural form works for this word. I mean: Jent = girl / en Jent = a girl / jenta = the girl / jentene = the girls / jester = girls. am i right or is there something wrong? because the explanation says that -A is used for plural with THE, (just for some words) but you can use even -ENE, ... but in the exercises jenta is singular. Can someone explain me that? Thanks a lot!
Jente = girl | en/ei jente = a girl | jenten/jenta = the girl | jenter = girls | jentene = the girls. In norwegian you have words that can be declined female (ei /-a) but in "official" bokmål you don't have to. It is easier if you only seperate substantives into neuter and rest (instead of male and female) but there are dialects that prefer very female words to be declined the female way.
I think he is also referring to the fact that some words can be decline to plural adding an "-a". I think it only happens with some neutral (et) words. For exemple: "et hus" (singular indefinite) , "huset" (singular definite), "hus" (plural indefinite) and "husa" or "husene (plural indefinite).
All of these refer back to the subject, and you use them according to the gender of the noun:
kona si = his wife (feminine noun)
osten sin = his/her cheese (masculine noun)
smørbrødet sitt = his/her sandwich (neuter noun)
It is explained in detail here: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/nb/Possessives
Is there a difference between "hers" the person just mentioned and "hers" another female? Just curious. Also, I wish I could ask someone the difference between si, sin and sitt. And why the possessive is before the noun in some spellings but after in others. When I touch the original, it gives me choices that make little sense without more context. I hate that the clubs are gone...
