What kind of bag would this be? A shopping bag, a handbag?
A handbag, suitcase, backpack or something like that. Shopping bag, plastic bag, garbage bag and the likes would be "påse"
and what would the verb for putting objects into bags of both sorts, as the english frase " bagging counter" "bagging baggies"
Are those phrases from the U.K., then? No one in the USA would say "bagging counter" or "bagging baggies."
If I remember correctly, the last time I was in Sweden I would say to the sales clerk "Kan jag har en pase?" Or maybe I sometimes just said "en pase, tack." Did I remember that correclty, then?
I use it for handbag and a suitcase. A backpack is en ryggsäck but you can also refer to a backpack with väska. Doesn't matter.
Would you use it in an Austin Powers kind of way?
Uhm, no. :)
That's just not Duolingo's bag, baby.
I don't know whether I should give you a downvote or a lingot for that. :p
Kanske båda? :-)
What is the name for a baggage claim at an airport? Is "väska" in the name?
Usually e.g. bagageutlämning.
