Example of a sentence with the word ’dock’ as an adverb: ‘Kritiken mot dåtidens planeringsideal hade dock börjat växa under 1940-talet och det beslutades at Södra Guldheden skulle byggas efter den nya modellen, kallad grannskapsplanering. Man ville nu istället betona värdet av relationer mellan människor och det sociala livet. Därför lades stok vikt vid att skapa mötesplatser i den lokala miljön.’ However, criticism of the planning ideal of the time had begun to grow during the 1940s and it was decided after the new model, called neighborhood planning. Instead, one wanted to emphasize values ​​of relationships between people and social life. Therefore, great importance was attached to creating meeting places in the local environment. —Våra Torg: En Vandring Genom Historien av Jonas Hernstig
