Re: Speech Must Be Free
Your very correct in your assumption about Sweden.
In fact Swedes don't really speak Swedish anymore. Even words from the Turkish language has become recognized as Swedish.
As a non swede with Swedish as my first language I clearly see this happen. In fact Swedish is better "preserved" outside of Sweden in countries that do have Swedish as an official language than it is in Sweden.
The other small languages like French that are paranoid about their language is Icelandic and Finnish. I really can't say what the situation is with Norwegian. The funniest part of it is that Norwegians and Finns sometimes communicate better in Swedish with each other. Than they do when they try to communicate with some swedes.
This word, ogooglebar, would not have been possible some years ago. But as the language did use "o" to reverse the meaning of the originating word, they decided this is possible for any word, just some years ago.
E.g. "lika" means "similar" or "alike", olika means the revers unalike or unsimilar. But that where individual words. Today you basically can put an "o" in front of any word to reverse it's meaning which is pretty rubbish considering the language. But that's only in Sweden where slang becomes the official language.
