The way she pronounces it sounds more like "Lieder" than "Leder". The former has a /i/ sound, the later is /e/. Completely different phonemes, I wish the pronunciation would be clearer.
I know.. everytime she says Leder I think she's saying songs (lieder). it bugs me.
I'm Austrian and just for interest looked here in German course. "Leder" has a short vocal and "Lieder" a long. So it is correct spoken, but very difficult without context.
It bugs you... Lol (emberFLY) pun
To my English ears it always sounds nasal like "Das ist Linda" :-S
So leather pants is......Lederhosen?
Noticed that too.
I think German people pronounce most e's as ee. My native language is Spanish I have been told that the German e sounds like the Spanish e, but is not what I finding most of the german audios anywhere.
They both do have the /e/ sound as far as I know (but of course this doesn't mean they sound the same).
Most common to use at Berghain
"das ist leder" is apparently "this is leather." I thought that "das" was "that"
It can be either. German doesn't make as much of a distinction between what English calls "this" and "that," so "das" works for both.
And I believe it should accept both "This is leather." and "That is leather." as answers, as it has been accepting in the previous lessons.
Das ist aeger zu mich!
Grrr I'm saying it exactly like her! !
This is balls. - Love that alternate.
No, this is mahogany :P
A popular sentence in Berlin.
How would one say that leather?
.....heard on a Tuesday night in Bergheim.
Das = This/That. In an earlier lesson, Duo used (This) and later (That)? Aren’t they both the same?
