Weird question but can this be used to mean thread as in a forum thread? If not, how would you say that?


En forumtråd (or en tråd på/i forumet). That's what I say, it hasn't gotten into the dictionaries as it's fairly new but it's the common term for a forum thread. The wonder of compounding. Tanntråd, sytråd, piggtråd, ledetråd, kobbertråd, ståltråd. The UiO dictionary has 21 hits on -tråd :)
