Obviously, white from snow, not white sand. ;)
Idk, I met a loooot of Swedes hanging out in Thailand!
but wait, there's dots over the a in strander now! is it like 'man vs men' ?
Yep! Strand is one of a handful of words who have a vowel change in the plural. There's a forum thread on the subject here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5886811
I hope I know swedish good enough one day to make this sound as atmospheric to me as in english or german.
Why not large white beaches?
"large" is stor in Swedish, or stora in the plural.
no sound at all
Works for me - hopefully was just a one-time thing. :)
"Is "Långa" pronounced with a silent "g"?
No, ng in Swedish forms an /ŋ/ just like in e.g. English "long".
