Karl XII:s bibel och den svenska stavningens standardisering

Ulf Teleman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch


Ideas on orthographic standardization at the end of the 17the century and a few decades afterwards. The principal actors: Swedberg and Hiärne. The most interesting problem: gemination of vowels and consonants. The new translation of the bible did change the orthography but the spelling was still too conservative and irregular in many respects.
