Ui, det er farlig med den østerrikske aksenten min, da blir det fort til "torsk". Er da
kanskje passende (altså i den danske betydelsen som tilsvarer norsk "tosk").

(English-only introduction here being an almost absolute beginner.)

I don't remember exactly why I decided to study Swedish; I had very minimal exposure to the language prior to that, never visited the country or knew much about its culture. I guess the only thing related to Swedish I'm familiar with is Nordic mythology, a big passion of mine ever since I was little.

My Swedish adventure began a couple of years ago; I started with Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone, then moved to Assimil. I got somewhere around lesson 40, but eventually stopped since the lessons became too difficult. Last year I hardly studied any Swedish at all. I'm quite surprised that I still remember something XD

In 2015 my main focus is going to be French, closely followed by German so I'm not expecting to make huge progress with Swedish. The only goal I set is to do a little practice everyday. I will give another try to Assimil (this time going at a slower pace, though), use Duolingo, listen to the “Nyheter på lätt svenska” podcast and, if it isn't too difficult, make some short translations every now and then.

Faktisk siger vi danskere også /tosk/ når vi hentyder til mennesker, men /torsk/ om fisken.

Hej!
Jag heter M*** och bor i norra Italien. Jag studerade litteratur och språk på universitetet. På universitetet   läste jag bara engelska och tyska men genom åren har jag sysslat på egen hand med flera andra språk. Nu talar jag också lite franska, spanska, ryska och naturligtvis svenska.

Jag vet inte varför jag lär mig svenska. Räcker det att säga att jag älskar språket och kulturen? Det finns inga praktiska grunder i mit liv för att använda svenska: jag är inte gift med en svensk och i mitt arbete behöver jag absolut inte svenska, men jag gillar att läsa och att lyssna på språket. Jag har få möjligheter att tala svenska: kanske ett par gånger varje femte år, när jag träffar svenska vänner och bekanta. Men det är ok med mig. Jag har aldrig försökt att skapa möjligheter att tala svenska till exempel med Skype och jag tror att det kommer inte att ändra sig i år.

I fjol fokuserade jag på mängden på den input av mina främmande språk (särskilt engelska och tyska), men i 2015 vill jag fokusera mer på kvalitet av mina ansträngningar. Därför planerar jag att fortsätta med läroböcker. Att arbeta med läroböcker kan bli jobbigt, men det ger bästa resultatet.


Hi!
My name’s M*** and I live in Italy. I studied languages and literature at university. There I only studied English and German, but over the years I’ve worked on my own on several other languages. Now I speak a little French, Spanish, Russian and obviously Swedish.

I don’t know why I’m learning Swedish. Is it enough to say that I love the language and the culture? There are no practical reasons in my life to use Swedish: I’m not married to a Swede nor do I need Swedish in my work, but I enjoy listening to and reading the language. I have few opportunities to speak Swedish, maybe a couple of times every five years when I meet Swedish friends and acquaintances. But that’s ok with me. I’ve never tried to create opportunities to speak Swedish for example with Skype and I think that won’t change this year.

Last year I focussed on the amount of input in my foreign languages (especially English and German), but in 2015 I want to focus more on the quality of my efforts. That’s why I plan to continue with my textbooks. Working with textbooks can be boring, but it gives the best results.

Hvad siger min Gyldendal ordbog?

1. "Tosk" star ikke i mit ordbog dansk!

2. "Torsken" = de kabeljauw (NL)

3. "En tosk" (NOR) = een stommeling, een dwaas, een sul, een oen (NL)

/tosk/ er en udtale, ikke en stavemåde. Nordmændene har åbenbart valgt at lade forskellene i udtale afspejle sig i stavningen. Danskerne er lidt mere konservative med det.

Alert! I haven't forgotten this thread, nor have I given up. I won't have access to HTLAL for a couple of days, so my status report for January will have to wait till next week.

Den gode gamle Ordbog over det danske Sprog har dog stavemåden "Tosk" med som variant af
"Torsk". Danskerne er nok blevet mere konservative end de var for 70 år siden i dette
tilfælde.
