New Swedish words...

When you're an alien you have to watch your native language so you don't end up speaking like a person stuck in the past. Like something out of a movies from the 50ies.

So now I've studied the New Swedish Words 2006 as reported today by The Swedish Language Council.

I'm now up to date .

I think.

There is this word... "Rondellhundar" (maybe translated as"roundabout dogs")...

WHAT is that?

Last time I drove a car in Sweden was... December 2005. And I didn't see any dogs in any roundabouts.

Did some googeling. Found some answers.

And this picture.
