Skånska

Swedish has many dialects so that Japanese has many dialects. The Swedish south has a district called Skåne. The dialect of Swedish spoken in Skåne is called Skånska. Skånska is different from other dialects in the pronunciation conspicuously.

Rolling R is pronounced in the north from Stockholm. The pronunciation of R of Skånska is called Skorrande R(as a uvular trill). It is difficult for Skorrande R to understand the Japanese.

日本語に多くの方言があるように、スウェーデン語にも多くの方言があります。スウェーデンの南部にスコーネと言われる地方があります。そこで話されている方言はスコーンスカ(スコーネ語)と呼ばれます。このスコーネ方言は他の地域で話されている方言よりも発音が違います。

“Nour ordering food at the mushy Skåne. ”

She orders Coca-Cola, but it is not understood first. Coca-Cola changes like Coca-Ciola. Skånska has many diphthongs.

柔らかい(ふやけた)スコーネ方言で注文するNour。彼女はコカコーラを注文しますが巧く店の子に伝わりません。女の子は何度か聞き返しています。コカコーラがコカ・キウラにように聞こえますね。スコーネ方言では長母音が二重母音に変化する場合がよくあります。

There are the cases that p/t/k turn into b/d/g. Skånska seems to be a language different from a dialect of Stockholm definitely in the case of hearing. It is said that it was affected by Danish of the neighborhood geographically.

p,t,kといった子音がb,d,kへ変化する場合もあります。スコーネ方言は聞き取る際にストックホルムあたりの言葉と全く別の言語ではないかと思うときがありますが、これはスコーネがかつでデンマーク領であった名残でデンマーク語の影響を強く受けているからだとも言われます。

  1. From my past time in Cobenhavn (I remember spell like that) I just learn to say TAK / TAK TAK.

    But I’m always a nordish think in my mind.
    Extrem weathers, mild summers -well, most time raining in Sealand- and a very charming people.

    The North European languages have Old Norse as common ancestors.Therefore, it is said that some mutual understanding is possible if there is it between them.

    However, time is necessary to learn even Swedish for an outsider like me. Because I was born and raised in a cold district, I feel charm in the cold country.

    Even a severe snowstorm of the winter is a dear thing for me :)
