That's what I was afraid of

-Norstedts svenska uttalslexikon (1997)
-Svenska språknämndens uttalsordbok (2003)
Of course these do not show how ordinary people actually speak, but they might give some approximate idea, although they are heavily biased towards official speech.
I didn't know any such book even existed, so that's a very useful piece of information, thanks
They would suffice for now (they would have to, anyway), as right now I don't have the slightest idea how to pronounce 90% of the words.

From what I've seen so far, I'm afraid you may be right...

Are such dictionaries in existence?
For English, they are, I'm just not sure they are when it comes to Swedish...

I just don't feel comfortable with online stuff, I'm old fashioned like that
Gimme a plain, printed old book any time
Thank you very much for information and advice!
