Welcome to the fourth Danish lesson about the plural. This time we will learn about the singular form and what it looks like in the plural, followed by grammar rules, finally a list of emergency phrases.
The plural is the form which refers to more than one object or person. For example: I speak two languages the plural here is [languages] because it refers to more than one [language]. The examples below use plurals in different ways and places to demonstrate how they look when converted from their singular form.
|Grammar + Rules - Danish|
|I speak one language|
[singular form] jeg taler et sprog
|we speak three languages|
[plural noun] vi taler tre sprog
|he visits many countries|
[adverb + plural noun] han besøger mange lande
|they are happy now|
[plural pronoun] de er glade nu
|she has five red shoes|
[adjective + plural noun] hun har fem røde sko
|I want a sandwich without onions|
[preposition + plural noun] jeg vil gerne have en sandwich uden løg
The following is a list of examples showing both the singular and plural form. This demonstrates how the plural is used with humans, objects and animals.
Now it's time to practice your Danish by looking at these phrases which are related to emergencies. Be prepared when traveling abroad, just in case you need help or by offering help to someone else. I recommend writing these expressions down on a notebook before traveling.
|English - Danish|
|Call the ambulance ring venligst efter en ambulance|
|I need a doctor jeg har brug for en læge|
|Where is the closest pharmacy? hvor er det nærmeste apotek?|
|Are you okay? er du okay?|
|I am sick jeg er syg|
|Call the police ring til politiet|
