Dear Everyone, (sorry for not writing in Swedish)

Does anyone know if there is a Swedish equivalent of the Danish-Danish 32-vol "Ordbog over det danske sprog" (in hardcover).

Best,
Christian

No, that's not it... Sep 13, 2007

Hi Erik,

Thanks Erik - no, that's not it. SAOL is more like the Danish Retskrivningsordbogen. I was thinking more in terms of the multi-volume SAOB (SVENSKA AKADEMIENS ORDBOK), which has etymology, etc. etc., but that only seems to exist in web form.

If it is out of print (as it might well be), would anyone out there consider selling his/her copy to me?

Best regards,
Christian

Goto www.saob.se where they say that you can by it in printed form through Akademibokhandelsn Gleerups.
Use ingegerd.hallen@lund.akademibokhandeln.se

Thanks Sep 13, 2007

Hi Mats,

As always, a big thank you. I should have seen that myself.

Just contacted her - in the meantime, if anyone here wants to sell his/her old copy, I'd be more than willing to give an offer.

Best,
Christian

I'll keep you updated. Sep 14, 2007

Dear Mats,

Will do... haven't heard anything from Ingegerd Hallen yet but I have also contacted my Danish bookstore in Copenhagen just in case (they seem to know someone who once knew someone in Sweden).

I have a feeling this is going to take some effort.

If you are interested, for comparison, I paid USD 1,250.00 for the Oxford English Dictionary over here (in NY), and USD 2,071.00 for "Ordbog over det danske sprog. Det Danske Sprog- og Litteraturselskab. 5th Edition. Copenhagen: Gyldendal, 1993", and that included the four supplemental volumes, shipping/handling costs, etc. I have a feeling that the SAOB will be a bit more expensive.

But I'll let you know what happens.

Best wishes,
Christian

Here are the prices of the SAOB Sep 18, 2007

Hi Everyone,

Just heard back from SVENSKA AKADEMIEN.

The various volumes are all priced differently. But the total for all 34 volumes (according to my computations) is around

SEK 50,500 (USD 7,550), incl. VAT, but minus shipping.

That price includes cover, binding and book.

Apparently you can choose to deselect cover and binding, which brings the price down to

SEK 15,550 (USD 2,325), incl. VAT, but minus shipping.

As eager as I am to support the rich and storied traditions of the Swedish bookbinders' trade and its expert craftsmanship, I'm currently leaning toward just buying the book.

I've uploaded the detailed pricing scheme to www.tollund.com/SVENSKAAKADEMIENSORDBOK.pdf

Best,
Christian
