Stupid mnemonic device for anyone who wants it: leie sounds like lie + eie, because renting seems like owning but it's a lie.

Can I ask a stupid question? What is the differences between "å leie" og "å låne"? What kind of thing can be "leid" and "lånt"? I thought that I can't say "å leie et sykel".

å låne = to borrow
å leie = to rent

So you can both 'låne' and 'leie' a bike, but in the latter case you'd be paying for the privilege.

Is there a reason 'du' is considered a typo?
