I am greatly amused that "appelsin" looks/sounds like apple but is an "orange."

the root of appelsin is "apple of china/from China"

It's interesting how it sounds almost exactly the same in Russian.

Yeah. It was confusing for the first time

Is there a difference in the pronunciation of the first syllable of frokost and the word frukt?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/griffindd

there is more "u" in frukt...try listening to the sound files at http://lexin.udir.no/ -> Bokmålsordbok->enter search word ->søk->click speaker icon next to word you want to hear
