Swedish term or phrase: Haverdal
"Haverdal" seems to be a place name.
How can I pronounce it?
xxxTF
'Haverdal': [háav-eh-rdáal]
Explanation:
This is an example of the so-called 'double-stress' that gives Swedish a sing-song quality.

To me it might very well be Norwegian (with the main stress on the last syllable).
