The three main categories in Danish Grammar

Like all other Languages, the Danish Language Grammar in a nutshell can be divided into three major areas which are;

  1. i)                    The parts of speech (ordklasser).
  2. ii)                  Objects, Subjects and Adverbials (objekt, subjekt og  adverbialled)

iii)                Complete  sentences and  incomplete sentences  (Helsætning og Ledsætning) and Word order (ledstilling)

A complete sentence must have two essential parts: a subject and a verb. A subject is a noun (a person, place, thing, or idea) that tells us what the sentence is about. A subject tells us ‘who’ or ‘what.’ The verb is the action of the subject, or it may be a linking verb. The part of the sentence that contains the verb is called the predicate. If either of these two essential parts is missing, the sentence is incomplete.

Another way to tell if a sentence is complete or incomplete is to see if the sentence expresses a complete thought. If there is not a complete thought, if you feel left hanging when you read the sentence, it probably is incomplete.
