Hello, guys. How is the name of that letters: æ, ø e å? I´m loving to learn danish. Thanks!
Alfabetssjatten gør mig til fro
Æ hedder æg, som en kyllingbarnbo
Ø hedder øg, gammel og uden sko
Å hedder åg som er skulderens bro
Sidste er bedste, det kan du tro!
I'm a native a speaker. What's the name of the letters? Hm, hard to describe in writing, but looking at how they're written in lack of the proper symbols actually gives a good hint.
Æ: You can also write this as ae. And in fact, if you pronounce (the Danish variations) of a and e, and then try to mix them, like finding the "average" of the two sounds, it's pretty close to æ.
Ø: You can also write ethis as oe. Do the same thing as before, now with o and e.
Å: You can also write this as aa, but it would be too easy if the same rule applied. Instead, I'd say this is more like the sound between o and a, but that's something I just came up with so don't take it as anything official ;)
Thanks! I´d like sooo much to travel to Kopenhagen... I love Danish movies, the cities and people seems very beautiful and nice!
