    Do you also use pojkvän/flickvän for an adult?


    Yes, we do. I find that the older a person gets, the more likely they are to prefer different terms - but it's definitely in active use regardless of age.


    About the difference of pronounciation in the "i" in "min" and "mig": how do I know when to pronounce one way or another?


    "Mig," and "dig," and "sig" are old spellings that stuck around, while the pronunciations changed over time. They are actually pronounced like /mej/, /dej/, and /sej/ and sometimes those spellings are accepted as well, but I think they're considered informal.

    Same thing happened with how "De" and "Dem" are both pronounced /dom/ in spoken language.


    Ohhh, that clarifies things quite a lot. Tack! :)
