pronunciation of SV skit » answer
by atemp (US), 2021-03-19, 17:51  like dislike  Spam?  
I am writing a drama character whose Swedish father has been known to say, "That is a crock of skit." And by skit he is not referring to a short comical or satirical theatrical presentation.

But skit as commonly pronounced seems to break SV pronunciation rules. To my EN-tuned ear it sounds like "whidth." What is the deal? Is some kind of polite evasion or euphony at play?

If there are any Swedish speakers who could help me find the definition of the word Slantkalle I would be very grateful. I have searched around but have not been able to find anything.

Sorry for the late answer. Sounds like this is supposed to be "klantskalle" – a clumsy person.

Hello! So A friend of mine wrote me letters to open over the span of 24 days. At the bottom of each letter was an individual letter from the alphabet. At the end I'm supposed to put them all to together to try to figure out what says. But about halfway through an "ä" was at the bottom so it's not in English. I've gotten to the end and it shows a Swedish flag pointing to an American flag so I'm guessing it's saying it's a Swedish phrase that I have to translate. But I don't know any Swedish so I can't figure it out, could you help? Here is my key:

please critique my translation of Milrök » answer
by divbyzero, 2017-03-29, 06:37  like dislike  Spam?  74.104.150...
Hi there --

I'd like to perform an English cover of the Sofia Karlsson song Milrök, whose lyrics are a poem by Dan Andersson.  (See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zwk-0iqdDsg for her version.)  I couldn't find an existing translation, so I attempted to write one myself with the help of a bunch of dictionaries, despite not actually speaking any Swedish.  Please tell me if I managed to capture the spirit of the poem.  It's not meant to be word-for-word exact, as I was trying to preserve the rhyme scheme and keep the meter singable, but I want to be faithful to the original message.  I'm particularly worried that I might have misunderstood the third stanza (which is why I didn't contort it further to make the rhyme work better).

Any constructive criticism would be much appreciated!

Looking for an "Ort" » answer
by Grose, 2017-03-27, 20:12  like dislike  Spam?  70.97.93....
I am looking for a city I think. It is on ArkivDigital. In a house record it lists the place where this person moved to and I cannot figure it out. The AID # is v112272.b150.s167 top left hand side of page. It is for Nils Andersson who moved to "Obettamd ort", that's the best interpretation I can come up with. In a moving-out record I found this word written again which is printed more legibly. It is AID # v112277.b185.s12 and is for Peter Månsson on the left side of the page , entry #14. it says " Obertåmd Ort" as best a I can figure it out. does anyone know what parish this " Obertåmd Ort" is located in? Any help is appreciated.

by Gerhard- (DE), Last modified: 2017-05-13, 22:51  like dislike  Spam?  
I don't have access to ArkivDigital, but maybe it's simply "obekant ort"? Eller "obestämd ort"?
Future possibilities on bilingual English - Swedish translations etc....? » answer
by Arcadian (GB), 2017-03-24, 15:23  like dislike  Spam?  
Hi :)


I've recently bought an interesting and very useful Swedish - English bilingual book on Amazon called "The Life of Cleopatra" by Redback books containing 77 pages, however in this case the story is secondary and not important.


It has three separate chapters, the first is Bilingual which contains short sentences or paragraphs in Swedish with the English translation just below.

The second chapter is the same complete story in Swedish only.

Whilst the third and last chapter is the same complete story in English only.

I've found it very useful and helpful indeed and would recommend it to anyone, but unfortunately there are only I think two or three other Swedish/English...

Can't get exact meaning at the end » answer

"Jag tycker din svenska var riktigt bra även om engelsk ordföljd gå igen."

Not sure of gå igen...."even if English word order is different" ? Or that Swedish word order is different ?

Thanks :-)
by njtwkr (SE), 2017-02-03, 14:23  like dislike  Spam?  
He thinks your Swedish is really good, even though your English word order is still there, haunting your sentences :]. There should be an 'r' at the end of 'gå' though.
by Arcadian (GB), 2017-02-03, 16:30  like dislike  Spam?  
See what you mean thanks, think I'll use the words spoiling or marring though as they would be the usual words used in English .... :)
by njtwkr (SE), 2017-02-03, 17:51  like dislike  Spam?  
Well, that's a bit more explicit than he expressed it. Your English word order is lingering, basically. I think your word order haunting your Swedish was a quite fitting expression. What is it for?
translation needed for a word » answer
by JuliaMay (UN), 2016-12-27, 18:11  like dislike  Spam?  
Hey :-)

I've been reading a lot of blogs and websites to improve in Swedish. There is a word I keep seeing around but I cannot find its meaning. I'm so sorry if it is a bad word or curse word or something very rude (although I don't think it is).
The word is : askorta.

by njtwkr (SE), 2017-02-03, 18:30  like dislike  Spam?  
'askorta' means 'really short' or 'short as hell'.
as- is an intensifying prefix, and 'korta' is the plural form of 'kort', which means short.

What is the English translation for the word "dårftädes". I cannot find it's meaning on the internet. The word appears after an ancestors name in a parish marriage record.

Are you sure it was "dårftädes" and not like därstädes(meaning: there; on that place)? If it really was dårftädes I have no clue; probably some regional word with an old spelling.
