The prefix 'Ytter'
So I've seen this prefix-word around different sources as I've been studying Swedish. I've seen it attached to words like 'rock' and 'öra', but as far as I can tell, it doesn't change the meaning of the word. I apologize in advance for likely butchering that, but I'm still learning. Maybe this is a question for some natives, but what is its purpose?
Tack så mycket!
Generally speaking it serves as the English, "outer".
- Ytteröra = external year.
- Ytterkläder = outwear.
- Ytterrock = overcoat.
- Yttersida, ytterdörr, etc....
However it can also be used as an adjective: [yetter, ytterst]. Or as an adverb "ytterligen" = "additionally"!
