Since way back when, people from far-far-away have had a strong influence on the words we use. In my opinion the Swedish language is heading downhill. A. Very. Steep. Hill.
No other language in the world is being slaughtered and massacred to the extent that Swedish is. From prepositions to pronouns everyone simply applies whatever rules they feel like using. Neither the Swedish Academy of Language, Teachers’ Associations nor parents seem to care in the least because children need to be pampered no end these days. No wonder the amount of garbage seeping its way in.
The nastiest, and what really makes me climb the walls, is the way foreign words are made Swedish. Here are some examples. The examples are English, but I threw in a German word to make a point.
|English||Swedish||Example of Daily Use|
|Fake||fejka||du kan sluta fejka nu|
|Fight||fajtas||dom fajtas med varandra|
|Tag||tagga||att tagga något|
|Geschwind||geschwinnt||det där gick geschwinnt|
