The Danish word "kage" means "cake".

Here are some lessons in Danglish from The Julekalender, Danglish is mixing the parts of English and Danish that make stuff sound the funniest

The Danish word trappe means staircase.

Trapper is plural.

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 fælden for enden af trappen med høj fart

Like German Danish used to have masculine, feminine and neuter, but masculine and feminine got merged into common gender.

one could argue that feminine and masculine genders are abstract, unless you're referring to neuter

i mean that both of danish's genders are abstract: common and neuter are not traditional "genders"

grammatical gender usually has nothing to do with gender

only for entities that can have gender

otherwise you have dresses that are masculine (el vestido)

spanish and indo-european genders mean practically nothing in comparison to other languages with grammatical genders (most of which pertain not to gender at all), they are used as a system for classifying nouns. Swahili is a very good example to look at.

I know that grammatical gender isn't based on actual gender, I just didn't think there were European Indo-European languages with gender without masculine or feminine gender

The Danish word kommune means municipality.

kommunicipality. Maybe instead of choosing between commune and municipality on Blacraft, we should just merge it into either communicipality or mune.

<BlaBla44>People would understand Enhedlisten the same way but it'd sound odd because s is used to "bind" the words together :P
<Kalassak>oh kol

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!



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



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



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



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



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



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)



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



"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!



After your stay in Kollerød, 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!



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



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



Another excellent place!



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

In Norwegian, many words from foreign origins are spelled like they're pronounced in Norwegian.

akselerasjon = acceleration (in Danish, it's spelled acceleration)
integrasjon = integration
potensialfunksjon = power function
