Etymology edit

Borrowed from Middle Low German stūken. Cognate of German stauchen. Compare origin of stock, stöka.

Verb edit

stuka (present stukar, preterite stukade, supine stukat, imperative stuka)

  1. to sprain (injure a body part through wrenching)
    Hon stukade foten
    She sprained her ankle

Usage notes edit

  • Usually implies a more serious injury compared to vricka (twist).
  • You idiomatically sprain your foot rather than your ankle (fotled) in Swedish, though "stuka handleden" (sprain one's wrist) appears to be more common than "stuka handen" (sprain one's hand).
