With pronunciation, do we drop/soften the hard 'g' from gir when it's in a sentence, or preceded by 'Vi'? I'm finding it tricky to work out from the audio.
"Vi 'ir o' tar"... or "Vi gir o' tar" ?
It should be Vi jir å tar.
'gir' (the verb) is always pronounced with a j, but there's a noun 'gir' (m), meaning 'gear', with a hard 'g'.
thank you so much :) when I hovered over the individual word the soundbite had a hard 'g', so I was curious to know.
Duolingo isn't able to tell the difference, unfortunately...
Does this mean the same thing as the English expression? Is it a Norwegian idiom?
