Re: Svenska Pastafariter!

Thats very interesting. Some words are hard to find in modern Swedish, but some are there but have just changed meaning a bit. Like "Kurra" (howl) now means the sound pidgeons do. But we still say that our stomachs "kurrar" when we are hungry and you say "Growl" about t...

Re: Svenska Pastafariter!

:lol: I'll take my chances and make sure that every thread from now on is derailed into an etymological discussion. Edit: A thing I've always felt like pointing out to someone living in England/UK is that you seem to have lots of town names that end with "By". "By" means village ...

Re: Svenska Pastafariter!

The word "Rat" as you say, is related to the Swedish "Råd". Rathause, for example (Courthouse) is in Swedish Rådhus. As many kids I got the choice between French or German in school and chose German. Most of its gone by now, but some fragments seems to remain. It helps when you a...

Re: Svenska Pastafariter!

Not only claws, but pyrit hooks. :haha: You practice your Swedish and you'll find our language has lots of things to get on your brain. Like our long words.
