Swedish edit

Etymology 1 edit

  • (noun) From sam- (co-) +‎ -bo (habitant).
  • (verb) From sam- (co-) +‎ bo (to live), compare sammanbo.

Pronunciation edit

  • IPA(key): (noun, sometimes proscribed) /ˈsambʊ/
  • IPA(key): (verb, noun) /²samˌbuː/

Noun edit

sambo c

  1. partner with whom one lives, usually not in a common law marriage relationship; cohabitant
Usage notes edit

The pronunciation of this word was originally with accent 2, secondary stress and a long final vowel, i.e. /²samˌbuː/, which is in line with other compounds with -bo, e.g. öbo (islander), stadsbo (city dweller). For most speakers, the pronunciation has, however, shifted to accent 1 with a short final vowel without secondary stress, i.e. /ˈsambʊ/, probably due to the influence from words like hambo (type of folk dance) and loanwords ending in -o, which commonly receive accent 1, e.g. mambo (mambo, type of dance), sambo (Sambo), tango, mango, etc. This accent 1 pronunciation also applies to other words coined with sambo in mind, e.g. särbo (partner one does not live together with), mambo (person who lives with their mother).

This causes uncertainty in the declension of this word. Whereas common gender words with a long final /uː/ are regularly pluralized with -r, i.e. sko > skor, öbo > öbor, common gender words with a final /ʊ/ do not have a native pluralization. For this reason, many speakers colloquially treat sambo as a loanword and pluralize the word with a foreign -s plural marker, i.e. sambos, or with a double plural marker -sar, i.e. sambosar.

This pronunciation and declension are usually proscribed, and dictionaries like SAOL and Svensk ordbok recommend using the accent 2 pronunciation with an -r plural in line with words like öbo, which they likewise recommend for words like särbo and mambo.
