Bra, tack.

I think? Strangely I haven't learnt any sort of polite conversation, just getting straight into asking where people are from, what languages they speak and what their telephone number is. Maybe by December I might have something I can remember and be of use (that isn't from the growing repetoir of fart-words I know).

I only know one fart word... clearly there is a gap in my knowledge.

Hej!

You know the o with two little dots over it? This one - ö. Is that pronounced as an "ooo". For example if I was pronouncing Södermalm or Viggsö?

Tack :)
And by me, I mean, Flexo.

jag alskar dig! jag vill se dig naken!

the only thing i can say in swedish but i'm damn proud of it. but i have a feeling that without accent marks it just means i like chicken or something.

Cuppie- Wow, who taught you that?

That's great.

Have you had the chance to use it?

What you should have done is not told us you know that, and then waited until I had a mouth full of some manner of drink at some point, and watched me spit it several feet. Maybe at some manner of meet-up.

You know å, ö and ä are not accented letters, they are completely new letters. They are in Swedish scrabble and everything, that's how you can tell.

SR - The ö is more of an uhh sound.

On another note, what happened to the first few posts in the thread... all the extra letters are messed up. messed up real bad... maybe it's just my browser.

It's not just your browser! When we moved the forum over to this new hosting, any threads with accented letters (or any non-English keyboard symbols) went a bit funny. I can't work out how to get those letters, though! If you can edit your posts and put in the correct symbols, it should work.

i knew that. cos a 19 year swedish kid beat me at scrabble (by over 100 points!) and the first word he put down was an english word that i'd never heard of. gah!

I have trouble ditching my English accent entirely when I speak Swedish.

But, on the phone before I learnt that speaking Swedish with a Hull accent makes me sound more like a Swede.

Interesting. It does sort of make sense... it's that viking invasion of the area helping me out again.

When I told Jonny that he sounded more Swedish (NB my idea of "clean" Swedish is Stockholm Swedish, but many people find it makes you sound snobby or stuck up. It doesn't! It's the natural accent. Totally. What do you mean subjective?) when he did that, he nearly pissed himself laughing.

It's true that.

Every Swede who's trying to teach an English person who to speak Swedish will sit there with them and go:
Me: Yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Him: Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Me: No, YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
Him: That's what I'm saying, Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

And the same with U and Ö.
It's a distinction that's hard to make, it's such a whiny little difference, not unlike the Hull accent in sound. So I do think it helps! Not if you exaggerate it, but if you subtly put it in.
