How do we treat accents in swedish?
Accents are not used, with the exception a handful of French loanwords such as kafé, kommitté, armé, allé etc.
And, for those who are unsure, they're always pronounced [e:], like the e in the word mer.
oh, I see, tack
Jag är senaten.
We are the Committee.. of Public Safety!!!
(I'm sorry I couldn't resist the opportunity of a history joke)
Could you explain this? Which country's history?
It's from the French Revolution- a branch of the government during the Reign of Terror was called "The Committee of Public Safety", that regulated security measurements.
Right! Thanks - I never covered the French Revolution in history.
I have no key for the e with an accent so I will never get past this question!
