Swedish language

Swedish has two genders common and neuter which are labelled (t) and (n) in the phrases.

These are not related to the masculine and feminine genders of many romance languages, but rather are the remnant of a system with three genders. Two of these (masculine and feminine) have merged to become the common gender (t).

Definite and indefinite articles

Common gender nouns have the indefinite article en and neuter nouns the article ett.

The Swedish definite article is a suffix (added to the end of the noun).

For the common gender, it is en. An example is, det här är hunden 'this is the dog', with hund becoming hunden 'the dog'.'

For the neuter gender the definite article is et, for example, brev 'letter' becomes brevet 'the letter'.
