Can anyonte tell me if Ukrainian has a word's last consonant devoiced as in Russian? Cause in this lesson, I can hear the б of хліб voiced, but in other lessons, she pronounces зараз like зарас, теж like теш. Please! Someone help me!
(is this still relevant?) Standard Ukrainian has no final consonant devoicing and this is seen as "Russian accent". However, it can be devoiced if a word that stats with a voiceless consonant follows: "Я теж там був" "i was there too"
The Duolingo translations states that "I do not eat honey, but I eat bread" and also "I eat honey, but I do eat bread." Is this a typo? How can it be both?
The second should be "I do not eat honey, but I do eat bread." However, if this is a multiple choice question and you are to pick all the correct answers, they often put a minor difference to see if you are paying attention. The second would not be correct if it is exactly that.
How do I pronounce хліб right?
