What's the story on the Oxford comma in Swedish?

The recommendation is not to use it.

Thank you - I saw that you posted this just after I came across your comment arguing against it for another sentence. I'm guessing that's why my question was downvoted...

I upvoted it to zero now – it's a legit question. Don't know why people downvote those.

And I thank you both, since I never knew that the final comma of a list even had a name :)

How do you pronounce och?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Arnauti

Usually just a short å. The k sound can be heard sometimes if people try to speak clearly or in some dialects. (the TTS is ok here)

do you not use capital letters when writing the name of the months in Swedish?
