Oh, is "T-banan" short for "Tunnelbanan"?
Yep! Have a lingot from a Stockholmer for figuring that out. ;D
tunnelbanan is pronounced wrong here. It's like the TTS thinks it's a word made up from tunnel (which is true) and banana (which is not true). Here is a link to how it should sound.
this was pointed out by davost
So they don't call subways tunnelbananas then? I will just use that word as a way to remember it.
This is interesting, because the fans often seen in tunnels are referred to as tunnel bananas for their shape.
Oh, but I prefer pronouncing it that way.
Why does this have to be "Stockholms tunnelbana" instead of "Stockholms tunnelbanan"?
You can't have definites after a possessor, just like you can't in English as well. It'd sound like "Stockholm's the subway".
