    Swedish plural

    What is the "correct" form of these and other loanwords in pl. in Swedish?

    Examples:

    the T-shirts - T-shirtsen/T-shirtserna?
    the Disco - Discona/Disconen?


    What is correct?

    Dunno about Swedish, but loanwords in Norwegian follow the standard way of pluralisation. I would assume it to be the same for Swedish.

    T-troja is just the swedishfied version of t-shirt. They probably say them both, depending on the person.
