Just a quick question
When I say Jag talar inte Svenska/ Jag talar Svenska
Jag talar inte Engelska/Jag talar Engelska
Is it ok to capitalize the language name? Or must they stay as svenska/engelska?
Tack så mycket!
Languages are never capitalized in Swedish. Same with nationalities, weekdays, months, holidays, titles, public institutions, among others.
If you check out the bottom of the tips and notes section under the Common Phrases skill it has this to say about capitalization in Swedish:
"Oh, and as you have probably already noticed, we do not capitalize adjectives, nationalities or languages (only countries). Unless they happen to come first in the sentence, of course."
I can't speak to the acceptability of capitalizing them regardless, but it looks like not capitalizing them is more typical (unless beginning a sentence).
