I love you


Explanation:
You might want to move this to the English into Swedish forum for confermation. I'm Italian, but I listen to a lot of classical music, including Sibelius and Grieg songs. If I know my music correctly, this means I love you in Swedish!

Proof that this is Danish, not Swedish


Explanation:
The Swedish first-person singular subject pronoun is "jag", so Swedish is eliminated. Also, I think the Swedish word for love is "älske", so is spelt differently.

"Jeg" is the first-person singular subject pronoun in both Danish and Norwegian. But whereas the second-person singular object pronoun in Norwegian is "deg", it's "dig" in Danish. Ergo, this is Danish, and not Swedish (or Norwegian, for that matter).
