Inventing Words

Mind you, let's call it discovering new words. 

In the last days of 2014, SVT published a list of 40 words new to the Swedish language. Many of them are related to feminism and norms. Mobile zombies and selfie sticks were also included.

Bah. Selfie sticks? Who needs those when you can invent such perfect words as:

Definition of uggmuggla: someone incredibly cute and wise. At the same time.

I have many Swedish friends and when I visited there, I found trying to learn Swedish hurt my throat.

Finish, on the other hand, is much more fun to learn, in my opinion.

I'm very glad to hear that finnish is fun to learn in someones opinion. But did you know that swedish is the another official language in Finland ?

Yeah, I don't think Swedish is particularly beautiful and the sounds can be quite difficult. Many people disagree with me, though :) However, I think the Swedish spoken in Finland is easier on the throat (less weird sounds).
