Declension[edit]

  • According to SAOL, the gender is neutral (ett presens) and plural is the same as singular (två presens). But it doesn't mention if there are definite forms.
  • SAOB (letter P edited in 1954) describes presens as an adjective, with the noun presensform as one of the compounds.
  • In the non-linguistic and dated meaning (attendance, being present), SAOB says common/feminine gender (en presens) and definite form is presensen.
