Yes, that's how it felt for me, too. I could recognise most words,
but often it took a while to recognise that it's Scandinavian.
I'd not try to blend unrelated stems from several langs, though, but
that's merely my personal taste, of course. :-)
BTW, what's the word for 'forest'?

I really don't think that was Ingmar's intention. I did not know how
to read his first posting, but now it's clear that the idea is to
simply discuss it.
That's what this list is for. And probably it's even the best place
to discuss it. :-)
