Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh, my God. It even has a watermark.

Omg thank you, i laughed so much watching this xD

Jeg likner på henne! Minibanker er fryktelige!

"jeg er som (hun/)henne"*

"jeg likner på henne" = "I look like her".

Jeg er som henne! Minibanker er fryktelige!

Hvorfor er de fryktelige? Fordi de er så dyre når du kan ikke finne en til banken din?

når du ikke kan*, otherwise perfect :)

Jeg vet at vi har vannet ut språket ved å godta «han» likestilt med «ham», men det er vel fortsatt obligatorisk med «henne»? Er det ikke?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fveldig

Ved sammenligninger er det fritt frem å bruke enten objekts- eller subjektsformen til ethvert pronomen. At 'ham' er på vei ut skyldes at den ofte forveksles med 'han' i talespråket.

Ah, fordi det kan være en slags kortform for «Jeg er som hun [er].» Det visste jeg ikke -- takk!

What's wrong with 'frightened of them' instead of 'afraid of them'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ellenspeaking

Surely nothing, that is what I used because it sounded more natural English and got marked wrong.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TARDISToni

It stands for Automatic/Automated Teller Machine. It has become the most common term for automated banking machines in the U.S. That may differ in other English-speaking countries; I'm not sure.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TARDISToni

You're welcome! As an alternative, they are sometimes called "cash machines."

Why is doesn't not right


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lstor

"She doesn't use ATMs because she is afraid of them." should be accepted, report it as an error if not.

I am English and always say "cash machine" never ATM. Is it an Americanism?
