Inte.jpg

To make a Swedish sentence negative we use the word "inte." We put it in different positions in a sentence depending on if it is a main clause or a subordinate clause.


Example:

MAIN CLAUSE[edit | edit source]

"Jag gillar inte glass, eftersom jag är allergisk mot mjölk." <-- "inte" is placed after the verb

(I do not like ice cream, because I am allergic to milk.)

SUBORDINATE CLAUSE[edit | edit source]

"Eftersom jag inte gillar glass, äter jag frukt istället." <-- "inte" is placed before the verb

(Because I do not like ice cream, I eat fruit instead.)
