Why not 'snakker'?

snakker is not a word in Swedish. snackar is, but it's very colloquial, not at all like in Danish. The standard words for speaking are talar and pratar, where pratar is a little less formal.

What's more, I think this may be a ghost sentence, I can't find it in the incubator.

Whoops, that'll teach my to try learning both at once. Oh well, at least I'll end up with my own unique dialect :)
