  • Swedish Holidays - Lucia

    A Swedish American in Sweden
    Hairy Swede
    15 Dec 2014 | 2:22 pm
    Last Friday I was last in a line of people who were all carrying a live candle with glittery, silver boas wrapped around their head. It was performance art. Kind of. I found myself in a choir full of PhD students singing to a recently defended PhD. And because ‘tis the season, we held candles.The flame whispered in front of me as I was overtaken by the holiday spirit. I belted out every note with the voice of an angel. It was glorious. A warm glow descended over me as the music transported me further and further away from this temporal world.And then I realized I should probably unlock my…
  • Work begins on the Tungelsta commuter station

    Photos From Haninge
    18 Dec 2014 | 1:34 am
    The commuter station in Tungelsta has been a busy building site in the last few years with a new bridge, a second rail-track to Västerhaninge, and before that the platform was rebuilt (made longer) to fit two long commuter trains. And now it is time again. And you will probably not recognise it when it is finished. An underpass will be constructed along with big stairs so that you can access the platform from two directions. The last remaining crossings will be closed and replaced with tunnels or new roads. all that will remain is the century old stationhouse.

"Most scientists have become used to the view that retroviruses are generally harmful," said Nobel Laureate Dr. Bruce Beutler, Professor and Director of UT Southwestern's Center for the Genetics of Host Defense.

For example, a language teacher automatically registers bad grammar on television shows even without trying to look out for them.So I have a major in Philosophy.

Hah!For the past few months, I’ve been living through a strange combination of being free and yet being somehow very busy. Being free from work is definitely underrated! People should try it more often if they can. In the first month of joblessness I felt the immense freedom of nobody telling me what to do with my day. No more waking up thinking of the day’s work tasks! – at least for an undetermined amount of time. I…

But certainly, sooner or later, some of the feelings and memories connected to that moment might feel less concrete after a while. So I write in a way that travelers write about their travels: because I want to be able to look back…

    A few days ago, a Russian military aircraft nearly collided with a SAS passenger plane somewhere between Copenhagen and Malmö. The plane was flying without its transponder on, so was apparently invisible. You know, except to the people in the plane. This isn’t the first time this has happened and the way Russia is going it won’t be the last. They’ve violated several countries’ airspace and don’t seem all too concerned about doing it. In fact, the Russian ambassador to Denmark, Mikhail Vanin seems pretty sure the Swedes are just a bit paranoid and imagined the near miss. He was…

Last time I wore my suit I decided it would be a good idea to run across the dance floor and slide feet-first between my cousin’s legs as he danced. Turns out it WAS a good idea. Unfortunately, it left me carefully dusting off my pants before Wednesday, when I would be attending the Nobel Prize ceremony.Nobel Selfie #1.

    So there’s going to be another election in March of 2015. Which is unfortunate since there was just an election not too long ago.

A budget, which is necessary for the ruling coalition to, you know, rule, was voted down today. The government was unable to reach any agreement and Sverigedemokraterna were able to flex whatever racist muscles they wanted. They chose to flex their most racist one and have apparently…

  • Why the double-definite in Swedish?

    Steve
    1 Dec 2014 | 3:44 am
    As you study Swedish, you will notice that the definite form, or in more literal but less accurate terms the “the”-form, is often shown in two positions: at the beginning of the noun phrase and tacked-on at the end of the main noun in the noun phrase. In other words, you will often see the following constructions: den svarta katten – the black cat det röda biblioteket – the red library In the first example, den starts the noun phrase and tells us that it is definite, i.e. that the listener or reader whom we are trying to reach should know which cat we are referring to.

  • Thanksgiving Foods in Swedish

    That’s an American Thanksgiving in Sweden back in 2003. Notice the artistic angle of the photo. American Thanksgiving is coming up. It’s the fourth Thursday of November (since 1941). There’s plenty to be said about the holiday in the US, both good and bad – there’s the consumerism that has bled over from Black Friday into the actual holiday, there’s the origins of the holiday itself, the romanticization of a coming together of the American Indians and the Pilgrims, which was (and isn’t) so simple and there’s also family, food, and football. Sweden doesn’t celebrate…
  • Swedish Grammar: General and specific “this”

    Steve
    3 Nov 2014 | 5:02 am
    Mmmmm! Hallå mina vänner! I had thought I was done with my series on demonstrative pronouns in Swedish, but I noticed a comment at the last minute with a great question that I decided deserved a full post. You might notice when listening to Swedish that when a person is presenting something new, they will use det här, even if what they are presenting is of common gender (“n-gender”), in constructions such as this: Det här är en hund. − This is a dog. Det här is the neuter gender (“t-gender”) form of den här, which means “this”. (More about den här…

    It’s Halloween. A time for super scary creatures. And super scary parts of grammar. Nothing scares me more than prepositions. I hate them. There, I said it. I hate prepositions. I mess them up in Swedish and English. And I’ve been speaking both of those languages for a lot of years. A lot of teachers might cringe at what I’m about to write because some people believe you should avoid saying that things you’re teaching are difficult, but there’s no point in lying: prepositions are hard and they never seem to have any rules. Of course, that’s not entirely true. The rule part at…

    Mmmmm! Hej på dig! I’m back with Swedish Grammar: This and that, Part 3. In parts 1 and 2, I explained two different ways to say “this” in Swedish. Now it’s time to explain “that”. If you recall from Part 1, the first way I taught you how to say “this” was den här. Den här is used for common or “n-gender” nouns. Det här is used for neuter or “t-gender” nouns, and de här is used for all plural nouns, regardless of gender. To say “that”, you basically just take each of these forms and replace här with där. So, for common gender…
