    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. http://spraktidningen.se/

      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!
