What's the difference between "liten" og "små"? Are they as much synonyms as "little" and "small" are in English?
Små is only used for plurals! See the tips and notes for more info ;D
I should really start reading those. xD
Too bad they are not available on mobile, which is where I spend 95% of my Duolingo time (during traffic, meals etc)

It redirects automatically to the app :'(
Why is it not 'Mauren er verldig lille' ? From reading the notes i thought all the definite forms took 'lille', i've probably misread it, but this is starting to hurt my head!
I think it's because lille is only used for a singular definite when you're putting the adjective before the noun. So, it would be "den lille maur" (The small ant) but "Mauren er liten" (The ant is small).
So in the the plural it would be "maurene er veldig små"?
Nei, du er veldig stor, og mauren er normal!
(*Not the best Norwegian but wutevs... TYT)
Just out of curiosity - how would you say "The ant is very light"? Tusen takk in advance :)
"Mauren er veldig lett."
Can lett describe weight and color like in english?
Wouldn't think so, as a light colour is 'lys' in Norwegian
Are the possessive forms of "small" for m/f/n/pl also "små"?
This sentence accepts "The ant is very tiny".
