It's so easy to confuse "ansvar" with English "answer"... :P

very cool that the root of "responsibility" is "response" and the root of "ansvar" is "svar". also, in serbian "odgovornost" (responsibility) from "odgovor" (response/answer) :D

"Who's" means "Who is". "Who is responsibility is it?" isn't really a sentence.

I just looked this up and it looks like I'm mis-using "Who's" where I should be writing "Whose". Thanks for the comment :)

What is the difference between "vems" and "vars"? Is one used with questions and one to connect sentences?
