Dutch and Flemish
As far as I know this is also used in Dutch / Flemish. Anyone knows any references? --126.96.36.199 19:10, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
"basta" is also used as an interjection in Danish with AFAICS exactly the same meaning as in Swedish. "och därmed basta!" is "og dermed basta!" in Danish. I'm not used to editing Wiktionary, so I didn't bother to add it. Jesse hz 16:55, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
Please look into the arabic 'Bas' which also means enough.
