I guess Finns ask themselves this question everyday
I hear there's a legend of a Finn who had decided to leave Finland and visit Sweden to see how it is. Most people think this is just a myth though.
There's an award winning novel about it. :)
why not "...Sweden is?"
That's not really correct English grammar
Thanks :), Good to improve my English too.
No idea why people are downvoting you. Just a fact!?
Actually, it is correct English grammar in the case of a subordinate clause. You wouldn't say "I wonder what kind of country is Sweden", you would say "I wonder what kind of country Sweden is".
my english is not really good. But what you say sound correct
A cold one
Kirjotin " what kind of country sweden is" ja se oli väärin. Eli kertokaa oliko sen mun vika vai
"what kind/sort/type of x" is followed by a verb, as most question words and related constructions in English are. :)
Should we still keep the first letter of "Ruotsi" capitalized if we mean Swedish and not Sweden?
Thanks a lot!
Does anyone know the etymology of Ruotsi?
The word Ruotsi has its roots in the Old Swedish prefix roþs-, which means something related to rowing. You can read more about it in Wiktionary. The English word "Russia" actually has similar origins. :)
Sweden is a good country Finland is the best
Should be :"millainen maa on Ruotsi"?
I think you'll hear "Millainen maa Ruotsi on?" more often, however your answer should be correct too.
