å bruke penger = to spend money. e.g. "Jeg bruker mye penger på mat" = "I spend a lot of money on food"
Norwegian has double definiteness. When you use 'den'/'det'/'de' (that/those) in front of a noun you also have to put the noun in the definite.
You shouldn't be able to, they're pronounced exactly the same. Most of the time it is clear which is meant from the context
Even after 8 full sentence playbacks, at regular speed, I cannot hear the "L" in "sykkelen". But when I hover/select the word alone it's very clear. 10Sept17
