Well my excuse for insanity is being cooped up in the flat all day in case somebody rings or emails me. In about 15 minutes I'm going to Hemkop just for the walk, and I'm looking forward to it. I might try and talk to people just for some human contact. Watch out for 'woman arrested in Gothenburg supermarket for groping strangers' headlines tomorrow.

I am bound to be hoisted by my own petard with this one!

No, I too have forgotten how to spell and because I had to change from Swedish to English (well, American English) on my pc, I seem to have lost the spellcheck.

Actually, that does bring me it a pertinent or is pertinant (!) point ...most of this thread has involved bilingualism between Swedish and English but English as we know is quite different depending on where it is spoken in the world (pissed/ mad/fag/ snag/ shag for starters). Therefore, I don't really have a problem with using Swedish words here and there ..for example, 'dagis', is well, dagis...it does not have an equivilent in British English - it is not nursery school or kindergarten which is somewhere where 3 year olds go for a couple of hours, maybe every day, maybe twice a week...it is not daycare as we understand it in England, because the Swedish system is more flexible but not long enough in hours, so the word 'dagis' is fine by me.

Well folks, nice to sea you picked up the error. Their was a particular reason four planting the 'learn' word; let's just say it's about putting a face to an author. 8)
And Littlefair? Nice to see that you're kids obviously respect you. No doubt your there hero. tongue.gif
As for the "D" word and other silly Swedish words being used inn English, I ain't given weigh.
KatieA: what is a "dagis"? Could it be a place for the temporary care of children in the absence of their parents? Funny, just one of the definitions for nursery you'll find in the dictionary.

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO...er, yes, actually. I know you find that hard to swallow, Missus Xmas but I couldn't give a toss whether you believe me or not. :roll:
As I said, it's about putting a face to an author, someone who just HATES it when people use learn instead of teach, which instead of that, who instead of whom etc.

Oh, yeah. The person I'm tracking also insists on using Swedish words when they speak English, defends their right to do so to the hilt and tries to get everybody else to do the same. Recognize yourself? I'll check in with ya all in a week's time when I get back out of the joint. So long for now.

Do whatever suits you and your family.

We speak English at home and Swedish outside - at work and at school - OK yes we do use the D word - but luckily we have manged to break the linguistic isolation and teach the English, Irish, Danish relatives at least one word of Swedish that they have shown no inclination of learning despite visiting us here for the last 14 years!
