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.
It does, thanks
D, r, and gi are all pronounced as z in northern Vietnam. Similarly, tr = ch.
It's Northern accent spoken mostly in Hanoi
In another lesson it said "the dragon is no animal" and it was never accompanied by a "con" classifier. So in the end the dragon is an animal after all?
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.
