    There are two genders in Swedish: general gender and neuter gender. The indefinite article of general gender is "en" and it is placed before a noun: en flicka, en hund.
    The indefinite article of neuter gender is "ett' and it is placed before a noun: ett barn, ett hus.
    When add either "en" or "ett" to the end of the noun, this article is considered to be the definite article (becomes the definite article):
    en flicka - a girl
    flickan - the girl ("e) in "en" is omitted when a noun ends in a vowel)
    ett hus - a house
    huset - the house (one "t is always omitted)
    en vecka - a week
    veckan - the week
