I got paid today and now I need to pay my bills.
jeg retfærdig gribte har lige fået betalet i dag og nu jeg behøver må jeg betale mine billet regninger.

- avis means newspaper, "journal" would be dagbog 'day-book'
- retfærdig means just, in the sense of righteous, gribte means seized, so unless you wrenched the money from your bosses hands, use meaning 'get.'
- at have lige ___t means 'to have just ___ed'
- is the Norwegian word, nu is Danish.
- at behøve means 'to need' in the sense of needing an object. To need to do something is expressed with .
- When you rearrange the word order in a sentence, you can move the time element to the front, just remember to flip the subject and object. It's similar to German.
- billet means 'the ticket'. Regninger means 'bills.'
- Have you studied Norwegian? They form the possessive with the definite, Danish doesn't. So regninger, not regningerne.

Let me know if you have any other questions, I'll try to help any time you need it. :)

I woke up this morning and found out that a tsunami is heading my way. Scary!
jeg vækket den her morgen og høret jeg der en tsunami står kommer min vej. Skræmmende!

*thanks, eskander!
- at have lige ___t means 'to have just ___ed'

so, this is just a grammar pattern that I need to remember, right?

jeg vækketvågnede op den her morgen i morges og jeg hørette jeg der at en tsunami står kommer min vej. Skræmmende!

- Vække is technically correct, but vågne op is much more common.
- Generally, with time expressions, we use i, and this morning uses morges instead of morgen
- Only flip the subject and object when you move a time element or something to the front, when it's just another clause you can leave it alone.
- At means that when it's a relative pronoun.
- I'm not too sure about står kommer, so I'm just going to leave it alone.

- at have lige ___t means 'to have just ___ed'

so, this is just a grammar pattern that I need to remember, right?

Exactly. :)

Just like I thought, the tsunami that everyone was talking about turned out to be nothing.
Kun så jeg menede, det tsunami alle ståte og taler var ingenting.

3/1/2010

I am so tired today. I think it is because I work around propane and it is making my head ache a lot now.
Jeg er så træt nu. Jeg mener det forbi omkring propane gas og det laver min hoved smerter.

3/2/2010

I cleaned up my apartment for about 4 hours today.
Jeg renset min appartement forbi af fire time i dag.
- I'm not too sure about står kommer, so I'm just going to leave it alone.

Does anyone know 100% if this is correct or not??

Kun så jeg menede troede, det tsunamien, at alle ståte og taler talte om var ingenting.

- mene is just 'to mean,' Danish uses at tro, which means believe, to say "I think."
- The only time that Danish will use det is when you have an adjective before the noun. Also, the gender is common.
- What did you mean with ståte og taler?

I am so tired today. I think it is because I work around propane and it is making my head ache a lot now.
Jeg er så træt nu. Jeg mener tror, at det er forbi fordi jeg arbejder omkring propane gas og det laver gør mig ondt min hovedet smerter meget.

- Forbi might be a typo, but it's used to mean 'past,' like 'run past the store,' not 'because.'
- Lave is used to mean 'make'
- Gøre sig ondt means literally 'do me pain,' but it's an idiom for 'hurts me.'
- Danish, like many other European languages, doesn't use the possessive for your own body parts, just the definite.

I cleaned up my apartment for about 4 hours today.
Jeg renset op min appartement lejlighed forbi af for omkring fire timer i dag.

- What was that forbi for?

- I'm not too sure about står kommer, so I'm just going to leave it alone.

Does anyone know 100% if this is correct or not??

I asked a Danish friend, she was 100% sure that this is correct. Sorry for the confusion. :silly:

- Make sure all your adjectives agree with their nouns.
- Danish doesn't really like to use complex noun constructions like "my new journal entries," it'd rather say "my new entries in the journal" or something.

I think these are pretty straightforward, except remember the difference between gøre and lave. Gøre means to do, in the general sense, lave is to do and to make all rolled up into one.
