Nick Marg The particle "M" for nationality and the word Holanzi, derivated from Holland
So....there will never be pronouciation for this language on here? Will we ever practice on how to say these words right
It reads like it's written. Reminds me of spanish, except the js are more literally j a = ah as in apple e = eh as in bed i = ih as in bid u = oo as in poo j = j as in jess r = you roll the r a bit ... Sounds like L
Funny how this is one of the first things I learned when I actually am Dutch... coincidence? Sidhani.
Yes, the h is always pronounced in Swahili (there are a few words that can be either spelled with or without and then of course you will find both pronunciations, like cinammon "hiliki" or "iliki", but we'll ignore these for now). It is always a consonant and not used to lengthen vowels or silent as in other languages. :)
