Emil, but if you see an very old woman in the cinema with a kid, if you want to tell someone that a "a kid went to the Cinema with his grandmother"
How would you say that? You are not sure who is the old woman
Perchance could we get "nan" and "pop" added as words in place of grandmother and grandfather? I saw someone make the same mistake in another question too. I dont think I've ever called my nan anything other than that (maybe nanmudder as a joke)
Mormor sounds to me like Mawmaw, which is what a couple of folks I know call their grandmothers. (So far this is the only similarity I've seen between colloquial Southern US English and Swedish. I'll be amazed if there are any more. :)
Does Swedish have other ways of saying Grandmother/father? For example in another comments section I saw that 'mor' and 'far' (?) were rather less popular compared to 'mamma' and 'pappa' and was wondering if that was true here as well?
