A feature of Swedish that makes it relatively easy to learn is its vocabulary. There is a core

Klantigt kalmar in the early lessons. Stress - which words are stressed in the sentence - and accent Swedish has two word accents - are the keys to your being clearly understood.

Word order "Klantigt kalmar" sentence structure - it is possible to learn to speak Swedish and make oneself understood without paying any great attention to word order and different ways of constructing sentences.

These include only one new term. Try taking it out! Not all grammatical objects are things.
Both subjects and objects can be pronouns. In 4 the verb has no object; in example 5 the verb must have an object. Main clauses and sub ordinate clausesMain clauses are groups of words usually containing a minimum of a subject and verb that Klantigt kalmar stand on their own as a sentence: Subordinate sub clauses are groups of words which also usually contain a subject and verb which form part of a main clause sentence: She walked faster when she saw the headmistress.
