I just have a question about the listening thingy. When you chose to listen to the fast option, is that native speed or no?
The word stool seems to be a cognate, would this be an acceptable translation? Otherwise does stol refer only to backed chairs?
Spot on in both cases. They are indeed derived from the same word, but a Swedish stol is always backed. The English "stool" is pall in Swedish, which amazingly seems to have remained unchanged for as long as we have written sources.
Edit: Ah, Zmrzlina beat me by maybe fifteen seconds... oh well. :)
