agree  Hans-Bertil Karlsson (X): *fniss* - just det här gamla TV-programmet från början av 60-talet var stående driftkucku inom SR-koncernen när någon producent använde pekpinnen för mycket - gällde speciellt UR :-)

agree  Görel Bylund: Vi tycker ju ofta att svenska är ett fattigt språk, men här slår vi engelsmännen med hästlängder! "Från ax till limpa" - hmm vilket härligt uttryck! - "From start to finish" skulle nog även jag säga.

  -> True. "Master's thesis" is the correct term if the person did it in a Universität. If he was at a Fachhochschule then there might be no real corresponding thing in the US and you could use just "thesis" or "dissertation".

agree  Mario Marcolin: "Från ax till limpa" kan ha varit en dokumentär/journalfilm från 40talet?, med copy av välkänd författare tror jag. Mycket pedagogiskt,. "from start to finish" täcker det mesta, "from A-Z" bäst för uppräkningar , :)

  -> Ja, am Satzanfang großgeschrieben. Und vermutlich die beste Lösung, wenn der Eindruck, den Quicky hier macht, zutrifft.
