Do iei "you take" and ei "they" sound identical?
"Ei" does usually sound like "iei" when talking. It's easier. You can also pronounce it as it's written, but it sounds a bit... pompous.
Yes. Here's an excerpt from the DOOM, concerning "ei": 2.1.3
I hear clearly "șeizeci", in the short as in the slow versions.
I accidentally typed 50 instead of 60. It was still rated correct. Oops!
I typed "ei" in place of "iei" because they sound the same, and my answer was accepted. It's not correct since there is no verb with my sentence. This should be fixed!
yes, they do sound the same
ei as a pronoun is an exception for pronunciation
the same as eu, ea, el, ele, ei - pronounced as ieu, iea, iel, iele, iei
to pronounce them as they are written is a mistake
