Oh great, that means I'll have to learn when someone is using the definitive by pure usage & deduction.
No. Not really. Try to listen several times. I can hear the "n" after the "l", but not the "e".
I dont understand, i was taught the "kvinnen" was "the woman" how is it also "the lady".
No, that wouldn't work. The general rule is that you take the infinitive of the verb, in this case "(å) stå", and then add an -r to make the present tense: "står".
One notable exception is the verb for "to be", which goes from "(å) være" in the infinitive, to "er" in the present tense.
Ok, thanks a lot, it makes a lot more sense now, I thought the rule was to add -er. Are you being paid by duolingo? You're like super reactive every time I've got a question, which is awesome, I just wonder when you find the time to work for a paid job.
You're welcome, and I wish! ;)
My vacation only lasts for a couple more days, so I'll have to take my forum presence down a notch, but I'll still be here as often as I can.
Thanks for always giving very clear explanations, Linn. You're helping us all a lot.
The word "stol" makes me trouble, because it's similar to our word "stůl" [stu:l], which means "table" :D (I'm from Czech Rep)
It is similar to the English word "stool" (as in foot stool or kitchen stool) so I always want to put stool instead of chair.
"Kvinnen setter tilbake stolen."
"Kvinnen setter stolen tilbake på plass."
