Om bloggen/About the Blog

I aim to use this blog to keep up my English and maybe give others some insights in Swedish language. It's not a diary - well not quite...

Sol

NaturföreteelserPosted by Gunvor 2011-01-17 16:53:04

Sol (solen, solar, solarna) is 'sun', just as in Latin. This time of the year she does not rise very far above the treetops. (In my dialect sol is hon - a she, in standard Swedish sol is den. There are only two genders: masculine and feminine have melted together into something that is called reale, with the pronoun den and then there is still neutrum, det - both to be translated to 'it', since English has no genders.)
