TerminologyEdit

DisciplinesEdit

In general: -nomi is "-nomy" and -logi is "-logy". "Ch" is k, "th" is t and "ph" is f. "C" is k when pronounced as k, otherwise c. Stress is on last syllable unless stated otherwise with bold letters.

Some tricky cases:

  • Chemistry - kemi
  • Mathematics (math) - matematik (matte)
  • Physics - fysik

"Swenglish"Edit

Since technology is a relatively newfangled thing in the big scheme of history, there are a lot of technology words that have been borrowed from english, especially in electronics and computer technology.

  • Teknologi - technology
  • Elektronik - electronics
  • Digital - digital
  • Analog - analog
