But then in BERG most Americans pronounce the "e" like an "ö" ( BÖÖÖRG) which to me is interesting when just "ö" is big trouble for most non Sweds

But i probobly sounds like the Swedish chef in the Muppets for most Americans . .haha
Umm no, Berg is pronounced like Berg, same as nerd. Coors is different, you know, like Coors. Reko is like Nikko.

Really? I guess they also call an iceberg and icebooorg. Gotta be Canadian or some other non-Merkin, maybe even from New York.

Well the "e" in iceberg sounds nothing like the "e" in the Swedish pronunciation of "isberg" ( swedish for iceberg )

We simply pronunciate the "e" in Berg different. . . shorter and "harder"

Kaxe, PD and Buzzz are a great way to go. Kastaplast is the only company that regardless of what they come out with. I was all kasta for a while, but had to throw the old favorites in.

I am anxiously waiting more info on the Gote

Yes, the ö shows correctly. Question though, is Swedish like German, where we can spell Göte as Goete to show the Umlauts sound?

Well we can, but i don´t think it´s very common. . . It´s more common to just skipp the dotts and say Gote.

I blame the internet hehe . . every Swedish company or name usually just skips the dotts in Å Ä Ö

Like Swedish tennisplayer Björn borg. . Bjorn Borg

If you watch the tvshow "Vikings", they actually pronounce "Björn" just fine in "Björn Ironside" . .but they translates his last name "Björn Järnsida" . . Järnsida= Ironside.

Swedish is easy. . .Finnish is HARD to pronounce. . Big jerm and Sexton always have a hard time with the Finnish names. . but so do we Sweds

Yea, the umlauts started to be replaced by modifying the vowels in German with the advent of modern typewriters.. I'm resistant, and still use them

Finnish, to me, is more like Eastern European languages, where Swedish/Norwegian/Danish is far closer to German.
