Hi! Just started my Norwegian tree, but how would you pronounce 'ikke'? thanks C.C.333.Flo

The way I heard it from my Norwegian colleagues is i (as in mint), kk (like the C's in soccer), e (like in ever).

Ikke should be pronounced like "ik-ker". If you are still confused try listening to the words being said and try to replicate it.

Is there really an 'r' in 'ikke'?

No /r/ in "ikke", unless this is a strange dialect I can't remember I have heard before.

all right , thanks x

It depends where you go in Norway. Some regions it sounds natural ik-ke, some ikjkje
