Mina kära vänner!
When sehiralti first put these courses together, he used a certain convention for marking that the adjectives in the course are given in their “common” form (i.e. without an -a ending or a -t ending, just the version you would use with a singular “en” word).
In the first part of the course, he tended to use this convention:
Whereas later in the courses, he has just used regular brackets, rather than curly ones.
At any rate, my first question is this:
Did you, or do you, have the same problem as I did for the longest time, i.e. that you did not actually realize what the “C” in curly or regular brackets actually meant???
As a result, I had a phase of randomly removing these bracketed “Cs” because I had no idea what they meant.
My second question also concerns adjectives:
As many of you no doubt already know, the adjective forms change according to whether they are neutral or common, plural or definite. Some adjectives look quite different when they are changed, for example, words like “röd” become “rött” and “blå” and “grå” become “blått” or “blåa”.
In the case of the adjective for “new”, “ny”, I decided to add all three forms - “ny”, “nytt” and “nya” because I thought that might be helpful for beginners to realize that there are all these different forms. There is of course also “nye” as well, used with “den” - “den nye Golf”, for example - but I guess that would be overkill…
So, here are my main questions:
Shall I add the other adjective forms for other adjectives as I come across them?
Shall I removed the various bracketed “Cs” or not because it is not clear what they mean?
