Usage notes[edit]

  • The various declensions are not tied to different meanings of the word, only a sign of the bewilderness of how best to fit this Latin word into Swedish.
  • Swedish uses centrum for the shops at the centre of a suburb (Farsta) or small and medium-sized town (Uppsala), while the centre of a larger city (Stockholm) is often called city.
