Officialy no, unofficialy "ie"
Just like the other pronouns not used when trying to emphasize. And extra difference it (unlike je we and ze) is never used at the beginning of a sentence. (Not by those who speak StandardDutch anyway, dialect is a while different story (and sometimes nearly a whole different language..)
Hello all. Could you tell me how to pronounce "drinkt" please? What I can hear on this course is like "drint". So, Is "k" not voiced? My native language is Japanese and Japanese does not have many sounds, so I am not confident with the sound of Europian languages. Also, it is not in the "Hij drinkt." sentence, but can anybody help me with the pronunciation of "vrouw"?
Spanish has two different Rs, which you can hear in the difference between "perro" (dog) and "pero" (but). The first is a trill (IPA: /r/) and the second is a tap (IPA: /ɾ/). The American R is written in the IPA as /ɹ/.
American English also has the tap, but we don't distinguish it from other sounds. "Ladder" for example is perceived as /d/, but it's really /ɾ/.
Yes, I understood your question. I was pointing out that "Hij is drinkt" is wrong for approximately the same reason "He is drink" is wrong.
If you want to say "He is drinking", in Dutch that's generally the same as "He drinks", which is "Hij drinkt", but there are contexts in which you would say "Hij is aan het drinken".
It is hij drinkt.
I don't think people know how to read IPA, so I'm going with something people recognize. And since the sounds of English and the sounds of Dutch are not all the same as each other, no it won't be exactly the same. Which is why I said "similar". It's close enough to get a rough idea.
