Time for Lanina’s Grammar!
Words in plural.
In english, a s is just added when it comes to plural.
“Pig - Pigs”
There are some words that are different, like
“Man - Men”
In swedish, it’s a bit more difficult.
Most words get a r when talking about a substantive in plural.
But, most words also end in consonants, how does this work?
It goes [vowel]+r.
What vowel is usually determined by what the last letter in the word is. And some you just have to learn.
Examples: Kvinna (woman), hylla (shelf), panna (forehead)
Most words in this group ends with an A.
These words will have -or in plural.
Some words that end with consonants are also here, like “ros” (rose).
All words in this group are words that are “n-words”, so that its “en pingvin” (a pinguin) or “en stol” (a chair) not words like “ett bord” (a table)
En fågel (a bird)
Flera fåglar (many birds)
En pojke (a boy)
Två pojkar (two boys)
There are some wierd things here too. Some words change more than just putting -ar after them. Words like “dotter” (daughter) becomes “döttrar”.
Most words in this group are also “n-words”. There are many words here that that end in e-[consonant] like “regel” (rule)
Before you can put -er on them, you have to take the last vowel out. So it becomes “regler” instead of “regeler” (easier to say).
Film - Filmer (film, films)
Bok - Böcker (book, books)
Växt - Växter (plant, plants)
There are more groups, but I will write about them later.
Like -R, -N and words that do not change at all.
