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...

Spinna

Djurläten/Animal soundsPosted by Gunvor 2011-01-03 16:23:04

Spinna, spann, spunnit, spunnen means three things:

1) to spin thread

2) to purr (by a cat). If your have heard the sound of a spinning wheel you know why.

3) a new loneword from English - to sit in a gym and cycle (I think)

Spinna does not mean just "rotate" as 'spin' does in English
