SWEDISH WORD OF THE WEEK: WEEK #3

Hej! Jag heter Super-Svensk! Hi! My name is Super-Svensk. If you have missed my first few posts, I do a "word of the week" page on Duolingo to help you guys learn some funny or interesting vocab words!


WEEK #3: SKRUBBSKÄDDA (common gender/en-word, plural: skrubbskäddor)
1. a species of flatfish (called the European flounder or white fluke in English)

NOTE: There are several other names for this fish in different dialects of Swedish--
Butt (most commonly in Gotland)
Flundra (most commonly in Finland)
Skrubba
Skrubbflundra
Stenpott (most commonly in Södermanland)
Kalmarflundra (most commonly in Småland)
Rönnamärra (most commonly in Skåne and Oresund)

Thank you to Wikipedia for the alternate names!!

MMM I'm going to Gotland to eat some butt! :-p

Oh, I often eat kalmarflundra in Färjestaden on Öland! Sounds much tastier than skrubbskädda by the way.

SS, are you archiving these anywhere? The Duolingo forum is not really built for finding things.

That would be a good idea! I should probably create a website/blog to put these on... I'll tell you when I make it :)
