I listened to this sentence a number of times and each time, because of the rolling "r" I think, I hear it as "groot".
For some reason I can't seem to listen to the voice. But did you try both the quick and slow voice? There should be no "g" in "rood".
I think it might be that the voice don't is using what sounds like an uvular trill, which sounds not unlike 'gr'.
I thought it was rood at first, but after listening a few times it do sounds like with a "Gr". Besides.... wouldn't it make more sense to say my chest is big, than my chest is red? I think they need to change the audio.
I heard an T from the fast and slow.
Yeah I'm having a hard time with these, even slowed down I can't tell if it's "rood" or "groot"
That's because she has a /ʁ/ R, most people in the Netherlands use the /r/ though, like in Scottish.
If you're wondering the English R, like in "wondering" is an /ɹ/.
I think that's just what people want to hear :p but yeah.. she is kinda hard to understand sometimes
Did anyone else hear "groot"?
Me kinda. Like I can easily understand why some people are saying/hearing that.
Ik ben een roodborstje? :-P
Ben ik een roodborstje* - with questions the verb usually takes the first position of the sentence.
yes we are birds
Is borst for both men and women? So Chest is for men and breast is for women.
Not quite. Both men and women have chests, but women's chests have breasts.
And in English you can also refer to a man's chest as breast. Or a chicken's.
Can't I say 'my breast is red'?
