I can't breathe! This has to be one of the greatest things I've even seen! Hilarious! You should really make all the Nordic countries, and Svealand and Götaland of Sweden as well. I've heard some hilarious pronunciations myself when there are tourist at the train- and bus station where I live. It just makes my day!

Säkerligen så ligger "Gelly war" och "Mum berry jey" mer nordöst om "Poor juice" snarare än rakt öst om "Jack mock"

Hheh! :D (Big Grin) A really hilarious way to "translate" all these Swedish towns to English. 
I'd like to see a map just like this of Finland as well (how would Helsinki, Turku, Tampere, Oulu, etc. go in English). =P (Razz)

Is this in a particular dialect?

I know some parts of the north they ignore the å for place names - or at least for Piteå (I'm told is pronounced "Pity" by locals) and Luleå (pronounced Loo-Lee by locals).

I could be wrong. Just wanted to check. :D

It's towns of the Swedish region of Norrland, written as they would be pronounced by an english-speaker. For instance, the town of Piteå would be pronounced as "P.T.O." and Kiruna would be pronounced as "Key runner".

Haha, someone should do a couple of these for Canadian provinces, I bet we'd have some good ones because of all the long Native language place-names.

Is this the "pronunciation"?
Reply
:iconeran0004:
eran0004 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, roughly. Some are more far fetched than others. But it has actually happened that tourists wanting to go to Venice has ended up in Vännäs (which on my map is marked as Venice), because the pronounciation is almost the same. So if you're in Stockholm and want to buy a ticket to Venice, you'd better check the ticket twice to make sure it's correct ;)
