Swedish-English glossary
Vocabulary: en-words indicated with '-en' or '-n' after the word, for example 'adress, -en', means that 'an address' is 'en adress' and 'the address' is 'adressen'. ett-words indicated with '-et' or '-t' after the word, for example 'namn, -et' means that 'a name' is 'ett namn' and 'the name' is 'namnet'. All verbs in the wordlist are in the present tense, for example 'I talk' or 'she talks'. Most Swedish verbs end with an V in the present tense. Pronunciation: use of bold indicates that the letter should be pronounced with a long sound. For example: adress should be pronounced with a very long's' sound: adresssssssss. The vowel before this long 's' and the long 's' itself make up the stressed syllable, in this case the second syllable, 'ess'. Example of long vowel sound: badar should be pronounced with a very long 'a' sound [baaaaaaaaaadar]. This 'a' and the following consonant ('d') make up the stressed syllable, in this case the first syllable, 'bad-'. Unusual pronunciations are indicated by square brackets. adj [ajj] goodbye adress, -en address allt all, everything badar: ~ bastu bathe; have a sauna badbyxor swimming togs bakom behind barn, -et child behver need berg- och dalbana, -n rollercoaster betalar: fr jag betala? pay; can I pay? biljett, -en ticket bio: g p ~ cinema; go to the cinema bjuder: jag ~ my treat blir: det ~ hundrattio kronor is/becomes; that's 180 kronor blomma, -n flower bl, -tt blue blser: det ~ wind; it's windy bokar: jag har bokat ett rum book; I've booked a room bord, -et table borta: hr ~; dr ~ away; over here; over there bowlar go bowling bra good, well bredvid beside, next to bror (brodern) brother (the brother) bulle, -n bun buss,-en bus busschauffr, -en bus driver bt, -en boat centrum, -et centre cigarrett, -en cigarette dagens today's dagens rtt chef's special dansar dance dit there dotter, -n daughter dricker: att dricka drink; to drink d in that case, then dr there eftermiddag, -en afternoon efternamn, -et surname engelska English familj, -en family fika, -t: g och ~ have tea or coffee; go for a coffee
