Doesn't the Swedish government care, besides providing courses to immigrants, to provide people who have an interest in the language at least with a dictionary?

I can't recall ever coming across a word that I couldn't find this way though.

Johanna wrote:Svenska Akademiens ordbok (SAOB) is supposed to be a record of all words in the Swedish language all the way back to 1521, but it's not finished and only covers A to vedersyn so far, and since they started on it in the late 19th century, spellings may be obsolete and you won't find modern words early in the alphabet either. But hopefully that will change once the dictionary itself is finished.

Just look at this shit:

What the fuck…
But it may still be much a better choice than Wiktionary
Actually, I think I can skim through the articles and find what I need. Many thanks!
