[SWE] OT: Swedish word (Sverige)

Hello all, recently visited Stockholm and was bought a keychain with the word "Sverige" on it. What does that translate to in English? Thanks!

Actually, the word "deutsch" and "dutch" come from the same original word. It comes from the word "teuton" which means german.

Originally, dutch was the word the english used for any people speaking a german sounding language and since the language spoken in Holland and Flanders is closely related to low german then it makes sense.

Well, sort of Andy. Svensk is the original and masculine form of the word. The suffix "a" makes it feminine. Svenska can mean both the language and the nationality (in the feminine case).

So you say:

Han r svensk, men hon r svenska?

Would anyone ever say "Hon r svensk"?
