Do you live in Sweden, but have another mother tongue, and feel that there is a word or saying in that language that Swedish is lacking?

Swedish Radio in Gothenburg wants to hear from you! They have started a crowd-sourcing campaign to find out what new loan words the Swedish language needs and to highlight the whole range of languages spoken in modern Sweden.

If you have any suggestions, contact them - and us -on social media sites such as Twitter, Instagram and their Facebook page "P4 Sveriges Radio Göteborg" and use the hashtag #mittord (my word).

Radio Sweden spoke to project manager Ylva Lindvall from Sveriges Radio Göteborg to find out more about the campaign, and we came up with a few #mittord of our own.
