In Bulgarian a pine or spruce type of a tree is called a Bor ( spelled Бор, of course)
I entered "Varet är grönt", which makes sense, as pus can also be green.
Does ett barr only refer to the needles of coniferous trees or can it also refer to a sewing needle?
Just FYI: Lots of Swedes have problems with the pronunciation of "sew" (as if sewing machine was a nickname for an American lawyer :)).
Sew is pronounced the same as "so". That's why costumer I knew called his business "The Old Sew and Sew", a play on the mildly insulting phrase of someone being an old so and so, usually when more offensive words would be inappropriate or harsher than intended.
what about the quills on a hedgehog? what word is used in swedish for them?
