Product Pairing





 

Product Pairing



Written Norwegian and Danish are so similar that on the back of products that has a description in several languages, Norwegian and Danish are usually mixed together, and the few words that a written differently are separated with a “/”. So “I love you” would look like this on the back of a product:

SE (Swedish): Jag älskar dig.
FI (Finnish): Minä rakastan sinua.
DK/NO: Jeg elsker dig/deg.

I’ve never thought about it before, but it was pointed out to me a few weeks ago that DK/NO looks like someone was writing a paring, like Harry/Draco. I haven’t been able to unsee it since. :XD:

@00joe01 Because Jag/minä älskar/rakastan dig/sinua. Seriously, do you know even one word in Finnish that's same in Swedish? In most languages that word would be sauna, but in Swedish it's bastu... so...

@Bookworm13 Why?

@00joe01 No. Just no. It wouldn't work.

@iamjtt I've often seen SE/DK/NO in our products. So... how do you feel being in a threesome? :P
