Prices and Quantities
Compare these "templates" or "formulas" for talking about quantities and prices in English and in Danish.
"[plural noun] + are + [price] + a/per + [quantity]"
[apples] are [$2.00] a/per [pound]
"It costs + [price] + per + [quantity] +of +[plural noun]"
It costs [$2.00] per [pound] of [apples]
"[plural noun] + er + [price] + [definite quantity]"
[æbler] er [18 kroner] [kiloet]
"Det koster + [price] + per + [quantity] [ plural noun]"
Det koster [18 kroner] per [kilo] [æbler]
"Definite" Quantity means you use the grammatical "definite" form. That is, put the gender word (en or et) onto the end of the word. Et kilo (a kilo) kiloet (the kilo)

Practicing JA and JO
Listen for these words in the audio track below: IKKE (not) ALDRIG (never)
Even if you don’t understand the rest of the sentence, try to determine if one of these words is spoken in the sentence or not.
For this exercise, we are going to assume the answer to the question is “yes.” (If the answer were “no” you would just say “nej” regardless of whether there is a negative word in the question or not).
If IKKE /ALDRIG are absent from the sentence, then just answer JA.
If IKKE /ALDRIG are present in the sentence, then answer JO.
