What is the rule for pronouncing d and r as z? are there any other letters that do this?
Northern dialect pronounces "d" and "r" like a "z". However, in Southern dialect, "d" is pronounced as a "y" and "r" is pronounced like a Spanish "r" where you slightly roll your tongue. Hope that helps.
D, r, and gi are all pronounced as z in northern Vietnam. Similarly, tr = ch.
It's Northern accent spoken mostly in Hanoi
yes, in Chinese 'the dragon' is 'long'
I dont like his accent. All i heard was z
It would be really helpful to have both northern and southern Vietnamese speakers in this course.
It'd be helpful for it to leave the dialects, or accents, until the end. For now, Duolingo should have concrete, proper pronunciations I believe.
Would "Con rồng có dài không?" be ok too? If so, what is the difference between subject+có+predicate+không vs. subject+predicate+không
absolutely, I've made the changes to add more accepted answers.
