can i say "Jeg preparerer meg" ?
No, "å preparere" is not used nearly as extensively as "to prepare" is in English. "Å forberede" is usually the better choice, and doubly so when referring to people.
Why not "meg selv"?????
Myself as an object in a sentence is just meg
That is a really useful nuanced thing I didn't realize until just now, thanks so much!
Should this sound like "forbreader" or like "forb er edder" ? Hard to ask via text, but how much of this word is actually pronounced?
"For-be-re-der" or "for-bre-der", the first "e" tends to be faint to inaudible - especially to a learner - and more of an "eh" sound. We all feel we pronounce it though. ;)
