Hang on, so can the verb "blive" mean both becoming something AND staying? That seems almost like two opposite things.
Yep, it can mean both :) Without something to become, it defaults to the second meaning. "Jeg bliver" just means "I stay", while "jeg bliver til noget" means "I become something"
So 'bliver' as the intransitive form is 'stay' while as the transitive form, it'd be 'become'?
What's the infinitive of the verb? German = bleiben ; Dutch = blijven. Is it bo or forblive?
The infinitive is blive. Forblive is a slightly different word, meaning to remain something or continue to be something, like "jeg forbliver tyve år gammel" = "I (will) remain twenty years old"
I legit almost put 'we LIVED at the hotel' because my brain was like, 'oh, Danish Duolingo? Weird sentence time!'
