Ha ha, it's clear what the DL writers think about golf... in the last sentence they said it was "konstig," now they say "ganska tråkig." ;)
They are not wrong!
YES THEY ARE!
The pronunciation of sport is wrong, it sounds like the English word, but in Swedish, sport has a short å sound, listen here: http://sv.forvo.com/search-sv/sport/
Both sound pretty much the same to me!
When only sport is spoken it sounds almost like spot, but the others sound pretty much like English sport to me.
Det beror på hur man spelar det!
Why not "golf is quite boring sport"?
That's not grammatically correct in English; it would be more like, "Golf is quite a boring sport"
when is sport 'sport' and when is it 'idrott'?
In this thread and another thread within it there are explanations of the differences between "sport" and "idrott". :)
Kan jag säga:
Golf is a very boring sport.
Golf is sometimes called moderatbandy (moderate bandy) in Sweden. Moderaterna is a rightwing conservative party.
In this sentence golf is called a weird sport, in another sentence golf was an idrott. Is golf en sport or en idrott?
