"the war costs many lives" - What is my mistake?
krevde is past tense.
would "the war claimed many lives" also be acceptable?
Yes, that's among the accepted answers.
oh. hmm must have mispelled something then. thank you.
Bare hyggelig. :)
Would å koste be an acceptable verb here, and what are the circumstance in which one would use å kreve over å koste to mean cost? Is å koste purely for financial transactions or something like that?
