How do you tell if it's been said tjue or sjue?

You thank the language gods for not making "sjue" a Norwegian word, and pick the only remaining option.

It's sju for Thor's sake! May Odin never let me to get confused so foolishly again!

Thank you Deliciae!

tjuende - sjuende is still a big concern to me :(

Looking utterly confused until they repeat it as either "syvende" or "tyvende" usually does the trick, but Liv is a harsh mistress. :/
