I don't know if hear it correctly but it seems to me like there's no difference in pronunciation between "woman" and "the women"? Is it right?

"kvinne" vs "kvin'ne". It might take so time to teach yourself to hear this difference.

To me, the difference seems to be the "nn" draws out longer in "kvinnene" vs "kvinne", as if it was "kvinn'ne". I try to focus on that syllable to ascertain whether it's plural or not.

Hello, I have also noticed the problem when I'm listening to the sound, I feel the sound like kvinner. Could you give me further tips about the difference of " kvinner" og " kvinnene" and similar situation. It sounds the same for me in this case.

Thanks in advance!

"Kvinner" is Women and "Kvinnene" is The women.

"Kvinne" is Woman and "en/ei kvinne" is A woman.

"Kvinnen" is The woman.
