    1. Thank you for these, Kevin!

      I wondered the same thing about ‘kommer’ and ‘came’. How would you know if it was ‘came’ or ‘come’ in this case?

      Du kommer for seint i dag. “You came late”, or “you come late” today? ‘Came late’ sounds better but maybe there would be a case when you’d use ‘come late’? It’s not as far back in the past?


      1. Thanks for the comment, Louis and Sandy.
        Got me wondering as well. Looks like if we go for a literal translation, then “you come late today” is what it means. But if we refer to correct English then it becomes, “you came late today”.
