dieser and diese
Is there a difference in the pronunciation of (dieser and diese)
The r in dieser is a soft r, which means it sounds roughly like 'ah'. When an r is at the end of a syllable, it is a soft r. So..
dieser = dies-ah
diese = dies-e
That was very helpful .. so does this apply to all german words ending in the same syllable i.e (er)?
Yes, you can hear the R in dieser.
(Google translate let you hear the difference) Hope this helps! Greets ;)
just went to google translate, but the pronunciation there is absolutly horrible and gets nowhere close to the actual pronunciation. And NO, you can't hear the R in german word endings with R, it's always something like AH

we do speak the r in the end. it is a soft r though which you speak like from "deep in your throat" , and about the link you posted: i do hear the r in the end of their pronuciation
I'm German ;) and usually you only hear the R if it's pronounced very clearly. That's why I always told my daughter when she was learning to write, speak clearly. It's spelled Wasser, not Wassa or Vater not Vata. :D
