Ha, I didn't think this course would end up teaching me English. I got marked wrong for saying I have forgot my password, which I actually now agree with, even though I have said it that way my entire life! :)
My iphone says 'ange lösenkod' when I have to enter my password/passcode. What is the difference?
I think lösenORD=passWORD and lösenKOD=passCODE. At least in Apple's view...
Really? "Kod" is code :). I have never heard "lösenkod", only "lösenord" and "kod".
Yup, mine says that too. I think it's "lösenkod" because it consists of four numbers, instead of letters. :)
Haha, so funny.. It really says so. I have a Dutch iPhone and set it into Swedish language.. Maybe I discoverd a new Swedish word now :-D
lösen comes from lösa, which basically means to resolve, although it has and has had many similar meanings throughout history. It's a very old word.
Old English actually used to have a cognate: "leese", which was gradually incorporated into the non-cognate "lose". That's why the English word "lose" has both transitive and intransitive meanings. :)
