Ok, this just came in to my head at the school, but.. You guys know à…land/Ahvenanmaa (their talking Swedish but it's in Finland..)? So, if your writing something in english, about à…land/Ahvenanmaa, should you write à…land OR Ahvenanmaa? o____O' I'm confused (and stupid but that's a secret.. untill now.). I would say that Ahvenanmaa, but I'm from Finland so of course I'm writing it like that. Pretty weird. XD

Yeah me too about the à…land thing, but who knows perhaps the à…länningarna's got their own name for à…land. Perhaps their name is just way different from both the Finnish and Swedish names.

Sure, here are some hints:

Buffy: Will, låt oss vara realistiska nu. De flesta av dina trollformler är bara halvdana.
Willow: Jaså? Ja men - det är ditt ansikte också!
Trollformel = spell
Trollformler = spells

Det var som en köttfest i min mun. Okej, nu är jag bara ett barn, och till och med *jag* vet att det där lät fel
Dawn says this to Willow in season 6.
Kött = meat :D

Fördomsfull? Om jag var mer tolerant med de beslut ni två tar skulle hela min hjärna ramla ut.
Fördomsfull = prejudiced

Yeah, can be.

And yes, I'm weird. Do you guys have own Fab 5 (The Queer Eye for The Straight Guy)? We have, that sucks. My questions are stupid but who cares.. ^^

hhhmmm i know a little swedsih... you know you could just use a translator on your pc to help you or get a program so you actually know how to pronounce the words cos it's kinda different reading a word and then being about to speak that word, if you get what i mean. anyways Natti Natti.

Yeah but the online translators are obviously horrible. It's probably good if there's a way to find out prnounciation online though, 'cause you're right, that stuff is really hard to explain... Anyways, if you want to learn more, just let us know ;)
(We could even do a small podcast Swedish course for you if you told us what you wanted to know, lmao :D )

Yeah, online translaters often very bad, plus it's more fun to learn it from a real person eh?
(We could totally do a "Learn Swedish" podcast, heh)

hannah whats the point in being able to read and write swedish if you don't know how to pronounce it.. thats what i'm trying to say. if you pay good money then the translations are pretty spot on i have found. and i have a freind who i talk to who teaches me some words..
