comment Is there a different way of saying “Steam Engine Time”?
I think I was a bit unclear, it's not so much about steam engine or about the significance of the event itself. Dawn or era seem to imply it's a grand invention. You wouldn't normally say "The dawn of the paperclip", "The dawn of the toilet seat". I'm looking for something that doesn't give any particular weight to the nature of the invention/idea. Just to describe that it's time for something to come to be.

comment What does “pax” mean in the context of the apartment rental?
Google seem to suggest it's somewhat common use in the UK. In Singapore in context of apartment rentals it's definitely short for "passengers".

comment What loan-words keep their native pronunciation?
That's not the practice in my naive language, so I feel the opposite way. I rather be speaking English when I speak English, most Swedes don't even pronounce their names in Swedish when speaking English. Our own native tongue have had movements of making loan words take up Swedish spelling multiple times in history.
