It's that time again. Every year, I've put together a list of untranslatable Swedish words. The first one, in 2012, remains one of the most read stories on The Local to this day. The second was also popular.
This year, I've gone with a theme of "typically Swedish". And a word of warning: Slide number ten is a very rude word that is definitely unsuitable for children. This is not a joke.

So a quick look at the golden "untranslatable" rule before we begin.
A word is untranslatable if there is no single word equivalent in English
For example, in Italy they have the word culaccino, which apparently means the mark left on a table by a cold glass. While it could be called a watermark, it is definitely not a "watermark". Nor a "stain" nor a "spillage". It's a culaccino.
You get the picture? Good. Let's get into it.

And remember, slide ten is not the kind of word you'd say to your mother. Stop at nine if you are faint of heart or mind.
