Anders: Hej Markus, det är Anders. Jag behöver din hjälp. Ge mig ett råd. Imorgon kommer min mamma med tåget och jag ville överraska henne med någonting litet.Hi Markus, this is Anders. I need your help. Give me an advice. My mother is coming over tomorrow by train and I wanted to suprise her with something small.
Markus: Hmm, låt mig tänka. Du kunde baka en kaka åt henne.Hmm, let me think. You could bake a cake for her.
Anders: Ja, bra idé! Kan du hjälpa mig?Yes, good idea! Can you help me?
Markus: Nja, okej visst, jag har ändå ingenting bättre för mig.Well, okay sure, I have nothing better to do anyway.
Anders: Toppen. Vad för kaka är lätt att göra men är ändå god?Great. What kind of cake is easy to bake but still tasty?
Markus: Alltså, min mamma bakade senast marmorkaka med körsbär. Den var riktigt saftig.Well, my mother made a marble cake with cherries the last time. It was really juicy.
Anders: Då gör vi den. Vad måste jag handla?Let's make that then. What do we need to buy?
Markus: Ett ögonblick, hon gav mig receptet. Man behöver ett paket mjölk, ett paket smör, ägg, ett paket mjöl, ett paket socker, bakpulver, vaniljsocker och givetvis körsbär. Helst i glasburk.One moment, she gave me the recepie. You need one milk packet, one packet of butter, eggs, one packet of flour, one packet with sugar, baking soda, vanilla sugar, and of course cherries. Preferably in a glas jar.
Anders: Ok. Bra att vi bor i bredvid köpcentrumet. Jag har nämligen ingenting av det här hemma. Det är bäst att jag handlar färsk frukt också: ett par äpplen och päron eftersom mamma alltid äter sådant.Ok. Good that we live beside the mall. I namely have nothing of that at home. It's for the best if I buy fresh fruit as well: a couple of apples and pears because my mother always eats that kind of stuff.
Markus: Gå direkt och handla allt. Jag kommer till dig om en timme, ok?Go right now and shop for everything. I'll come to you in one hour, okay?
Anders: Ja, det blir bra. Tack, vi ses snart.Yes, that's good. Thanks, see you soon.

Ett-words (Neutrum)

The words that we call ett-words, meaning the words with the neuter gender, can be divided into two groups. The first group ends on a vowel and the second on a consonant.

indef. sing. def. sing. indef. plural def. plural
G1 -vowel -t -n -a
ett äpple äpplet äpplen äpplena
an apple the apple apples the apples
G2 -consonant -et -en
ett paket paketet paket paketen
a package the package packages the packages

Words ending on -er lose that -e- in the definite form singular.

Example: socker – sockret.
