A complete set of Svenska Akademiens ordbok, as of late 2014. Note that the majority of the volumes remain unbound in this set.

Svenska Akademiens ordbok (Swedish: [²svɛnska akadɛˈmiːns ²uːɖbuːk]), abbreviated SAOB, is a dictionary published by the Swedish Academy, with the official title Ordbok över svenska språket utgiven av Svenska Akademien. This dictionary is the Swedish counterpart of the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) or the Deutsches Wörterbuch (DWB).

The first volume was published in 1898 and as of 2012, when the latest volume appeared, work has progressed to the word VEDERSYN. As of September 2014, the online version has reached the word TÖVLA which completes the letter T. The dictionary has approximately 450,000 main entries, and is expected to be complete around 2017. The searchable web version has been available since 1997.
