I hovered over the word "determine " and it showed "bestemme deg/dere", what does it mean after you add objective pronouns?
Bestemme deg is "decide (for) yourself"
I like to cut out unnecessary words, so in this case, "du må bestemme" works fine if we're talking about someone else making a decision for a group
Well yes, "du må bestemme" is something you say to your boss when there are problems.
However, you say to your friend: "Du må bestemne deg." (Go out and have a drink with us or stay home with your wife watching TV.)
all I can think about is this scene from "Airplane" lol
Phoebe's 'Love Triangle Song' from friends popped right into my head hahaha
That was terrible. Is it a movie? I love problems like that. What's the name?
Can you not use "Du trenger å bestemme deg"? I have been saying things like "Jeg trenger å spise" in real life and nobody has corrected me :O
"Jeg trenger å spise" is something I would say if I was very hungry.
I though you would use "må" when you talk about "must do" and not "have to do". "must do" sounds a little more strict or is it the same with "have to do"?
Du må .... and you must/have to .... is about the same I think.
"Du er nødt til å komme." ,(You must/have to come) means the same, but å være nødt til" is a bit more serious than "du må".
Why is the "deg" necessary in this? Doesnt it repeat the "you" twice?
why not - besteme seg ?
The reflexive pronoun refers back to the subject:
is there a way to know when do we have to use those pronouns? for example can we just say :" du må bestemme " ?
If you say: "Du må bestemme." you tell the person that he has to decide and you will follow.
You go to the movies, you say to your friend: You must decide/Du må bestemme."
Then of course he decides to watch
is it okay if i just say "du må bestemme"? or i must use this form?
Å velge is acceptable in a different example (decide what to eat) but not here?
'å velge' = 'to choose'
can we use 'Å Besteme'?
'å bestemme' means 'to rule/to make the decision'.
