Declension of verksamhet
- Verksamhet is a neutral word, often used in legal texts and social sciences to denote any kind of private or public institution or enterprise.
- While Swedish verksam (worksome, one who works; i.e. busy, but also effective) doubtlessly has the same roots as German wirksam (effective), their meanings do not fully overlap. And Swedish verksamhet (activity) has taken on quite a different meaning than German Wirksamkeit (effectiveness). Swedish verksamhet corresponds better to German Tätigkeit (activity).
