To me, it sounds very much like pâinii. Very difficult to guess this word.
So it’s un pui, doi pui, puii (one chicken, two chickens, the chickens).
I'm confused, is there no difference in pronunciation between pui and puii? I cant seem to hear it.
In fact, the i is pronounced slightly longer in puii - try to pay attention when spoken by a native, not the computer voice in this course.
The amateur that I am can discern it here.
I was just thinking that grant..I get the impression that a lot of the time it's more to do with the written rather than spoken form of the language if you get me ;)
