    Wouldn’t it be more useful to readers to link to the actual website of Språktidningen, rather than a blog post about it that also gives no information about how to get hold of the magazine? Anyone can subscribe online with a credit/debit card – no need to go to Sweden.

      Hi Doreen. Yes, it probably would have been helpful to link to the actual magazine. Reading someone’s perspective about it always interesting too, though. Thank you for providing the link!
