Hi maxholloway,

I was able to find the word 'stark' and translate it from Swedish to English.

I didn't have the same success with Grovkornig.  I found many
references to the word within Swedish websites, but was unable to find
a translation.

Here is what I found on the word Stark:

Swedish entry word
stark [star:k] starkt starka adj. 
som har stor styrka, kraftfull (of living creatures; figuratively "powerful") 

English translation
as opposed to weak, mild 

starka armar---strong arms 
stark regering---strong government 
stark kyla---severe cold 


Swedish entry word
stark [star:k] starkt starka adj. 
som intensivt påverkar sinnena 

English translation

starkt kaffe---strong coffee 
stark ost---strong cheese 
starka drycker---strong drinks 


Swedish entry word
stark [star:k] starkt starka adj. 
slitstark, hållbar 

English translation
durable, lasting, solid 
as opposed to fragile, brittle, perishable 

ett starkt tyg---strong fabric 

Hopefully another researcher will have better luck with the other word.

Best regards,

Here's an example, from a Swedish recipe for Easter pasta salad, of
"stark" and "grovkornig" used together:

"stark grovkornig senap"

This translates as "strong coarse-grained mustard."
