Danish Short Answers

A yes/no question can be answered with a short phrase, just as in English. The verb gøre (to do/make) is used with the pronoun det and the subject of the question. Some verbs are not replaced by gøre and are repeated in the short answer, such as være and have. This is very similar to English, except for the word order. Positive Short Answer: Ja + det + Verb + Subject Negative Short Answer: Nej + det + Verb + Subject + ikke
Arbejder han her? Does he work here?
Ja det gør han. Yes he does.
Nej det gør han ikke. No, he does not.
Er de glade? Are they happy?
Ja det er de. Yes they are.
Nej, det er de ikke.  No, they are not.
