With "virke" being the third word for "to work" so far, is it right to say "virke" is for objects functioning correctly (or not as in this case) and "jobbe/arbeide" for persons doing work themselves? So then you couldn't say something like "pensjonisten virker ikke"?
Is not "klokka" the same as "klokket"? I've thought that all female articles could be replaced by the neutro article, although is not common in spoken language. Grammatically, am I right or I misunderstood that?
