Can someone help me on the pronunciation and the transliteration of Ä?
ä is pronounced as /æ/, as in the a in "rather", "math", and "rat".
Your post is fine. But did you also read the great "Tips" before each skill ? They cover the entire pronunciation for every letter.
Look under the finnish alphabet
Like я in Russian in the word глядь but without palatalization.
not even close
if we're talking about russian letters, then finnish ä is closer to э than to я
In the Russian language the ӕ sound is an allophone that appears in some words with the letter я.
To me я sounds like "ya" (or kinda like the Finnish word "ja"). I know Ä gets transliterated to я but that does not mean they make the same sound.
I don't think the suggested э matches with Ä either, it sounds like E in Finnish to me.
It might be, but ä gets often transliterated to я.
Ä is pronounced like in the world “cat”, ö is pronounced like in the world “bird “. So all you have to remember is cat and bird.
The vowel in 'bird' is /ɜː/ in most accents of English. Finnish 'ö' is /ø/, for which the lips need to be more rounded and the tongue further forward.

Basically you pronounce eee but with your mouth open like when saying aaa. For ö same thing, pronounce eee but mouth like when saying uuu.
And for those who can German, y, ä and ö are pronounced like in North German dialects.
