I'm Swedish, yes. I know English, of course, and German. I have a good passive
understanding of Norwegian, and to a lesser extent Danish and written Dutch.

It feels decidely West Germanic. It is most similar to Dutch and Low German -
hardly surprising since they're the most central Germanic languages.

I don't perceive 'Swedenisch' as being any closer to 'svensk' than what
'Swedisch' is; it just looks odd.
