"-ien" is a common Swedish ending to many countries or geographic regions, like Italien, Spanien, Asien, Skandinavien. It is considered more as a part of the name than as the definite form.
Instead of Scandinavia I said Norden. I thought they were considered the same thing. Am I thinking of the wrong word?
Nordic countries include Iceland and Finland, which are not part of scandinavia
This has probably been in other discussions, but can anyone please simply explain the difference between "i" and "på" ? :)
Generally, i is in and på is on, but then when they’re used can differ a lot between Swedish and English. Prepositions tend to be tricky.
Är i Skandina ligger Sverige också korrekt?
