Is this like "the description of him was poor" or "his attempt at a description was poor"?
And what would be the first? Beskrivelsen av hans...?
'Beskrivelsen av han(/ham)'
Of course! How stupid can I be! It could never have been " hans" in this case. Thanks!
Er jeg bare dov? Når hører jeg på den langsomme uttalelsen , jeg kan høre d-lyden. Men den normalt uttalelsen virker ikke å ha den.
It's audible at default speed as well. Many mobile devices have less than stellar speakers, so that could be playing in.
Can 'dårlig' not also translate into 'terrible' ?
No, "terrible" is a more strongly negative adjective, and better translated as "forferdelig" or "fryktelig".
