The record as in The school record, There is a record of his reservation, or A phonograph record?
“The record” in the information sense, so either of your first two examples.
Me too. But the f sounds like th. Is it just ne? Is pronouncing f as th normal in some dialects/contexts?
Are you talking about an English "th" or an Irish "th"? There are dialects of English where "th" is pronounced "f", but I've never heard of anywhere that pronounces "f" as "th", and all I can hear in this clip is a "t" at the beginning, an "f" in the middle, and a "d" at the end.
I should have clarified, I meant an English th. Listening again, I'm not sure what it sounds like. Not a th like in English, not the f I'm used to either. But if others don't hear it, then I guess it's in my head.
The "f" sound here is interesting/confusing. At least to my hear, it sounds like it's almost shading into a "th". Sometimes I hear it, sometimes I don't.
