Swedish – basic information

  • Swedish is a member of the North Germanic subgroup, a branch of the Germanic languages. As a distinct language variety it emerged in the Viking period (at the turn of the second millennium). Originally, it was written in the Runic alphabet, which at the start of the 13th century was replaced by the Latin script. The standard variety, as we know it today, began to evolve in the 16th century. The standardization process was trigged by the Bible translation, and was strongly endorsed by the royal court. In Sweden, the language is now regulated by the Swedish Language Council.
  • The Swedish language exhibits fairly considerable variation. There are six groups of regional dialects, some of which are unique to small local communities (e.g. individual parishes, the so-called sockenmål). Finland Swedish is spoken by approximately 300 thousand Finns (ca. 5% of Finland’s population) living in small regions of western and southern Finland.
  • Due to genetic relationship, Swedish is very close to Danish and Norwegian (Bokmål). These three languages are regarded as mutually intelligible. Swedes can successfully communicate with Danes and Norwegians speaking their own language.
  • Swedish is an official language of the European Union and the Nordic Council.

Interesting facts

  • A distinctive feature of Swedish pronunciation is a large number of vowel sounds. Overall, there are 18 vowels: 9 long and 9 short.
  • The definite article (the equivalent of the English the) is postfixed (added as a suffix) to the noun, e.g. hund (Eng. dog) → hunden (the dog).
  • Like in German, words are coined by compounding. As a result, the Swedish lexicon has many long words, e.g. regionutvecklingssekretariatet (Eng. the secretariat for regional development).
  • The longest Swedish word in Swedish is the 28-letter noun realisationsvinstbeskattning (Eng. capital gains tax).
  • The Swedish language makes a distinction between maternal and paternal grandfathers and grandmothers. The grandfather on the father’s side is called farfar
  • (literally, father’s father), while on the mother’s side – morfar (mother’s father). The Swedish for grandfather is mormor (on the mother’s side) or farmor (on the father’s side).
