Usage notesEdit

In most of Sweden’s traditional dialects the Old Swedish definite neuter plural ending -in developed into -a rather than the -en ending found in standard Swedish. Though such forms are considered strictly non-standard, they are found in dialectal texts and occasionally in the works of authors such as Astrid Lindgren, as well as in the spoken language of many dialecta around the Swedish-speaking area.
