The Hanseatic league

The Hanseatic league was a trading agreement between Sweden and Germany in 1100 – 1600. The Hanseatic league was founded because they didn’t want benefit from trading with each other. At its peak, almost a hundred cities were a part of it. There were three groups in the beginning of the Hanseatic league. Its importance faded in the middle of 1600 when the world trade took other ways. The old German word ‘’Hansa’’ means group, therefore the name.

German loanwords in the Swedish language

The Swedish language has a long history of borrowing words from other languages. The source languages have usually been a large economic or cultural importance for Sweden.

The German language has always had a huge impact on the Swedish language. But the biggest period when Germany had an impact on Sweden was during the Middle ages (approximately 500 years). This was Germany’s strongest period in Sweden. Words were to be borrowed from German until the early 1900’s.

German words are now a part of the Swedish language and are used daily. Example: German word – Swedish word – English translation

arbeit – arbete – work

bliva – bli – to become

möglich – möjlig – possible

The Swedish word order changed because of German as well. Many suffixes and prefixes were also borrowed.

Astrid Lindgren

Astrid Lindgren was a Swedish author. She made a lot of books for children. She was born in 1907 in Småland, in Southern Sweden. We all know that she is famous in Sweden, but did you know that she is just as famous in Germany?

In Germany, there are 200 schools named after her. And especially the book “Barnen i Bullerbyn” has made a big impact on Germany and has given them a picture of what Sweden looks like. They have a romantic, child village look to Sweden just like they got in “Barnen i Bullerby” according to svensktyska.se
