Swedish[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Old Swedish skula, from Old Norse skulu, from Proto-Germanic *skulaną.

Verb[edit]

skola

  1. shall, will, be going to; used in the present tense (ska or skall) with a main verb in the infinitive to give the future tense, mostly intended future, or used in the past tense (skulle) with a main verb in the infinitive to express the conditional mood or the future of the past.
    jag skall äta
    I shall eat
    jag skulle äta, om...
    I would eat, if...
    jag skulle just äta när...
    I was just going to eat when...
    jag skulle ha ätit färdigt innan....
    I should have finished eating before...
Usage notes[edit]

By semantic reasons, this verb hardly ever appears in the infinitive, therefore the infinitive is unknown to many or perceived as archaic. The perception of the infinitive as archaic may also be a consequence of the fact that it once also was the form of the present tense used for plural subjects, a category of inflection that is obsolete in modern Swedish.

Conjugation[edit]

The short form of skall is ska and is more commonly used, skall is although used in the expression vad som komma skall whose grammar is very dated.

Etymology 2[edit]

From Latin schola.

Noun[edit]

skola c

  1. a school
