Oh dang, more Swedes!  I blame you, Archonix!

Archonix, this is my exact problem with Swedish:  Redundancy.  They have already used the article 'den' (highlighting it is a definitive noun), and applying an adjective, in this case 'svenska' (Swedish) to the noun, 'Futurama-gruppe'.  The problem here is, that both 'gruppen' and 'den' highlights it is a definitive noun.  Yes, Swedish, we already got the point when you started using your own definitive article, we are not that stupid.

Norwegian has the same problem.  Even in their national anthem; 'Ja, vi elsker dette landet'.  'Dette landet'?  What's with the redundancy!?  Wasn't it clear enough to begin with?

That, and the fact that Norwegian and Swedish people sound terribly boring and uninteresting when they speak.

However, at any rate, welcome to PEEL.  Though, not sure how many Swedes occupies this landscape.

Emphasis should only be used in some cases (like there), not as a general rule in grammar!  If they call it 'emphasis', then they are sillier than I thought they were.

Check it up with that Swede of yours!

What's with the hatin'?
Also, are you Danish or do you just live in Denmark?
'Cause Danish people sound a hell of a lot more boring when they speak.
In fact, they sound like they have porridge stuck in their throat and they're really angry about it! Norwegians on the other hand, sound happy all the time, even when they are angry. Swedes? We're somewhere in the middle! "Landet Lagom"

However, thank you. smile And no, there doesn't seem to be many Swedes here...

I was trying comedy.  But it seemed to have failed on the audience.

Seriously, can you people get a better 'joke' than the 'potato in throat' one?  I am even using it myself!

Don't get me started. The Finns have the most monotonous sentence structure ever. When a Finn asks a question the emphasis goes down. Very difficult to sound like a Finn especially when asking a question.

Comparing Finnish and Swedish is like comparing apples and steak.  Sure, they are both edible, but their origins are completely different, and different in structure.  But in the end, serves the same purpose:  Consumption.

Finnish is a Finno-Ugric language, not an Indo-European language like Swedish and Danish, and hell French, Persian and English too.

Finnish have several advantages over Germanic languages, but also have some downsides.  But since Swedish and Danish are so closely related, they are easy enough to seriously compare.

No comparison intended. When I studied Finnish (bah) I too learned ie's history and origins.
No articles in Finnish and no prepositions because the nouns are modified there is no such phrase as in the car, it's autossa or go to Helsinki it's menee Helsingiin.The grammar is a killer.
Finnish is also related to Estonian, but this is no surprise as only a small body of water separates them.


This is one reason Finland is considered Nordic but not Scandinavian.

Why are we discussing Nordic languages??

It's called OFF TOPIC and it happens all the time. Especially when nobody gives a toss about the original intent.

We'd really only say "Futurama-gruppen" (The Futurama group.). The name being in Swedish should suffice as a marker to suggest that it is in fact Swedish.

But being a Wii-idiot (notice how I in a very swedish way bound these two words together into one, like magic.) he has in the group name added a few words (and therefore, in this case, two markers) probably in honour of the second studio album of the swedish 8 bit music group Slagsmålsklubben (The fight club) entitled "Den svenske disco.".

If it is as I am guessing the fail here lies in the fact that he used the letter a in "Svenska" instead of e in the end. But maybe he just likes being definite, I don't know.
