Usage notes[edit]

  • The whole word is archaic, so most examples are quite old. If the conjugation were to follow that of känna, the past tense would be begynde, but begynte is much more common. Past participle begynt is used for both neuter and common gender (året är begynt, striden är begynt), but begynd can also be found.
