Introduction to Swedish:
Lesson 28

Do you see that et in det? That’s an et because it assumes you are referring to an et-word, such as ett hus, by using it. It is kind of the default case.

However, if you were to refer to a thing that is non-neuter (therefore an en-word), det changes to den. So, how would you say talking about a thing - en ting:

I have it.

Answer: Jag har den.
