Apathetic Echidna Posted October 24, 2017 Share Posted October 24, 2017 @Holmbo and @time-is-ticking could the word 'buddy' be mistaken for anything else if you happened to start using the English word in conversation? that is of course assuming that whoever you are talking to has a standard contextual understanding of the word 'buddy' and will recognise it. The only other thing I can think of (seeing as my knowledge of the Swedish language is limited to what they say in the movie Frostbiten~) is giving the person a slightly unflattering nickname that they are not offended by. For example, Steamtrain, Balloon Man, Les Cats, Long Back. As for a general term to call friends is there some sort of activity/job descriptions that could fit to make the terms you have less romantic? 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
