Some Danish words which rhyme with blad:

mad - food

So if someone says "Jeg sad i et bad og spiste mad pه et fad", don't worry, the person just sat in a bath and ate food on a dish. I would have done the same!

So what's the danish word for blade?
Title: Re: Bla's Danish Lessons
Post by: Bla on October 28, 2012, 10:06:21 AM
Actually that's also "blad" (on a knife/spade) or "klinge" (on sword/saw).
Title: Re: Bla's Danish Lessons
Post by: Bla on November 04, 2012, 11:02:50 AM
The Danish word "have" means "have", "garden" or "seas/oceans"

The Danish word "most" (pronounced: "must") means "juice"

...So "وblemosthave" doesn't mean you must have apples but that it's oceans or a garden of apple juice.
(Might be useful information for tourists who may fall into the secret underground apple juice oceans below Copenhagen.)

The Danish word "save" means to saw.

This fact always bothered me when playing Pokémon back when I was 6-7 years old. I couldn't understand why you would "saw" the game. It didn't help that the other people I knew at the time also pronounced it in Danish as if we were actually sawing the game.

Kol, good to see that you English-speaking people have also had trouble with games.

Some other things:

- Another person many years ago came to the conclusion that the word "cancel" was pronounced "shangel" ("a" like in father)
- I didn't know what it meant when Pokémon said that the move I used couldn't be used against the enemy (it was resistant or something), this meant that I would keep using it over and over in some battles because I just thought it was failing. :-[
- There was a move in Pokémon called "drill peck", sort of similar to two danish words "drille" (tease) and "pik" (d*ck), so some person called the move "drillepik". Wut.

Do a grammar lesson!!! How do Danish plurals work?
Title: Re: Bla's Danish Lessons
Post by: Bla on January 10, 2014, 01:13:05 PM
You usually add -r or -er to the ending, like -s in English.

But because Danish changes noun endings instead of using "the" in front of them, it's different for definite nouns. Plural definite nouns usually get the ending -rne/-erne/-ene (depending on whether they're common gender or neuter, in definite singular, common gender nouns tend to end in -n, and neuter end in -t).

Examples, English - Danish

(common)
a staircase - en trappe
the staircase - trappen
two staircases - to trapper
all the staircases - alle trapperne

(neuter)
a sign - et skilt
the sign - skiltet
two signs - flere skilte
all the signss - alle skiltene

(have fun)
four fire alarms made Buster fall into the trap at the end of the staircases at high speed
- fire brandalarmer fik Buster til at falde i fوlden for enden af trappen med hّj fart

otherwise you have dresses that are masculine (el vestido)

Quick English Tourist Guide to Interesting Locations in Denmark

Hello everyone! If you ever decide to travel to Denmark, there are some places you absolutely must visit! Do you like horses? Do you not like horses? Well, if you can answer yes to at least 0 out of the two questions, you should visit Horsens!

(http://i.imgdiode.com/jENJTB.png)

Do you want to sin but forgot your sandals? Go to Sindal!

(http://i.imgdiode.com/eSyH9D.png)

Like it when random stuff drops on your pan? Go to Pandrup!
If not, just go there anyway.

(http://i.imgdiode.com/bODN4A.png)

If you thought the essence of iDense didn't make anysense, go to Odense!

(http://i.imgdiode.com/HV1TXD.png)

Too far away from the easter bunny? Don't worry, the wester bro can save you.

(http://i.imgdiode.com/trRz7i.png)

Do you hate slag and pollution? Slag-else is the solution!

(http://i.imgdiode.com/RadWx2.png)

Heaven is filled with fools and Hellfrozenover is too cold? Come to Hell Erupt, Gorchul's favorite pizza party place!
(Warning: The place is filled with conservatives, rich capitalists and lemonade stands)

(http://i.imgdiode.com/xRIXEt.png)

You may not know Danish very well, but this is your perfect chance! Come to Tarm, Lem and Sوd!
(Hint: Tarm means intestine, lem means limb and sوd means semen, don't ask who came up with those town names)

(http://i.imgdiode.com/Z6nG36.png)

"If a hair grows in Lenin's beard and no-one is around to see it, does the world become communist?" This interesting philosophical question has challenged the minds of Blacraftians ever since February 5, 2014, and recent evidence suggests the answer might be in Kollered!

(http://i.imgdiode.com/ApYaOP.png)

After your stay in Kollerّd, you of course cannot possibly resist the temptation of walking along Kollekolleway in the amazing town of Ballerup.
And Gorchul offers free pizza on Anyvej!

(http://i.imgdiode.com/UOPZUx.png)

It may sound like a lame idea, but lam means sheep, so don't miss this opportunity to improve your Danish.

(http://i.imgdiode.com/q57UEr.png)

If you don't want a young, strong bro to come at you, visit Broager.
And Gorchul offers free pizza in Hobro!

(http://i.imgdiode.com/YMZlEF.png)

Another excellent place!

(http://i.imgdiode.com/cRxROJ.png)

And of course, no tourist guide is complete without showing you the funniest place in all of Denmark...

They work similarly to English, you add -r, -er or -e to the end of words usually.

Chair: stol -> stole
Bag: taske -> tasker
Painter demon: malerdوmon -> malerdوmoner

In Danish, 'lad vوre' means 'stop it', but 'hold vejr' means 'hold your breath'.
vوre and vejr are pronounced the same way when saying it.

So back in kindergarten, I remember that there was someone who used to say 'hold vejr' instead of 'lad vوre'. Every time someone teased her she'd say 'hold vejr', then the one teasing her hold its breath in front of her, which she found to be teasing, so she said 'hold vejr'.

As you very well know, you are now sitting here attending today's Danish lesson exam. Unfortunately, your internet connection doesn't work (and the NSA would arrest you if it did) and there's only a few minutes left, but you have yet to answer the final question.
To your great relief, it turns out to be a multiple choice test.

What does "Kornkammeret" mean?

a. oatmeal
b. the grain chamber
c. corn comrade
d. the oatmeal comrade
e. that it is officially recommended to consume
