Sounds like "[Look] mom! A jet ski!".
Oops. Nevermind. I forgot about the rule when c is followed by i.
Is "dzieci" a cognate to "дети" ?
Am I hearing the pronunciation of dzieci correctly if the "c" sounds like an English "ch?" In other cases the "c" sounds to me like a "ts" sound.
Yes, before the letter "i", the letter "c" is pronounced like "ć", ie like a soft "ch" sound.
Great explanation, thank you!
It is a nothig . english langusge has a lot of cases where one leter in diferent words has diferent pronunciation. I always wonder why "c" sounds like "k" if you have special leter for that sound. (I am ukrainian with native russian).
