I didn't make this month's goal in time, but I did manage to watch a third of 'Mio, min Mio'. I'm not entirely sure whether it can really be counted - it's the adaptation of the book by Astrid Lindgren, but the film isn't originally Swedish. I'm watching a dub, and not a particularly good one.

Interesting. How do you say it in Norwegian? As a Swede, I assumed it was the same as in Swedish:

NO [SE] (EN)
i kveld [i kväll] (in evening)
i går kveld [i går kväll] (in yesterday evening)

I was referring to "i natt" which can be ambiguous, but if we use "kveld" then it's the same as Swedish. Of course, there are various ways to say it if you want to be clearer, but it isn't usually a problem.

Some speakers of my dialect use "i nättras" for "last night" (perfectly analogous with vintras, våras, somras, höstas, julas, påskas etc.)

Ah, then I'm with you. Thinking about it, it's common to leave out går when referring to the previous night. Managed to find a tweet from Språkrådet mentioning the same conclusion as you; that it's usually understandable from context. Did a quick search in a newspaper database and noticed that they are using "i går natt" less for every year with "i natt" being used about ten times more now. Getting lazy. ;)

I apologise for going off topic.

I'm sure I've heard "i går natt," but seldom enough that it sounds a little strange. "I går kveld" sounds normal though.

Hi everyone!
I realise I'm a bit late to the game but I've just started a log for my Swedish studies: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2070. Is it OK if I join the team? I've been reading the boards here for a while and really appreciate some of the suggestions you have made on your logs so I hope I can contribute something useful too :)

You are more than welcome! This isn't a TAC group, so anyone can come and go as suits them. I'll put your name and log in the first post. Also, welcome to the forum!

This might interest some of you. 100 Swedish dialects: http://swedia.ling.gu.se/info/litenkarta.html

Click on a province such as Skåne to get a closer look and then click on one of the circles such as Löderup to get four different versions of the dialect spoken at that location.

Äldre kvinna = older woman
Äldre man = older man
Yngre kvinna = younger woman
Yngre man = younger man

Compare older men in Norra Rörum, Borgå and Villberga.
