Yes,they are both indo-european languages. You will find many more similarities.
Very glitchy I'd say. Worse so far in the course and I'm at module 4 out of 5
They are often sold at farmers' markets in the UK, and even some veg shops. Sometimes even as an expensive speciality vegetable in the supermarket.
Fun fact, carrots were originally purple, I think the Dutch at some point developed an orange variety and it stuck on
The TTS pronunciation is ok here, but generally the intonation is a bit weird. The Swedish prosody is quite special and that must be a challenge to a poor computer :).
Try googling it. For example, I found this: https://ielanguages.com/swedish-fruits-vegetables.html
If it is not a yellow root (gullrøt), what is it? Is there an old word for orange from before oranges started growing like weeds in scandinavia?
Yup, there are at least two old words for 'orange', brandgul ('fire yellow') and gulröd.
brandgul is still in use to some extent and so is gulröd but the latter can also be interpreted as 'yellow and red' like in e.g. striped.
PS a yellow root would be en gul rot.
To a German, this sounds like a combination between "Möhre" and "Karotte" - guess the Swedes simply couldn't decide? :P
Oh yeah, the beginning absolutely! Then it perhaps used to be a Mohrrübenkarotte...^^ In this case, I'd prefer the short & handy 'morot' as well ;D
It's actually likely derived from the same root as Möhre, but rot literally means "root" so the prior meaning was "carrot root". Then those words eventually merged, and just came to mean "carrot". :)
