Danish is weird.
It reminds me of English/German/Dutch/Norse all mixed together.
Yeah. It has the apparent unphoneticness of English with a lot of word similarities to Swedish/Norwegian.
But it's the language of LEGO! So it's therefore cool.
Haha. Yes and they even pronounce the combination of letters T and R like we do too!.
Tre is pronounced chre!
For me that is shocking evidence of how much old Danish influenced old English.
Jan Terje Faarlund, a Norwegian linguist, agrees with you.
Is 'pige' supposed to sound like 'pee'? Because that's what I hear :/
Yeah, from what I've heard, the Danish/Swedish/Norwegian 'G' sound is usually a 'Y' sound, at least when before an 'E'. This is a major generalization, though.
It sounds like "Pee-yeh" to me.
Actually in Swedish that is true in general only for stressed syllables. For instance in the word "mage" (stomach) the "g" is hard.
It's hard for English computers to talk in other languages. Also, I think it's weird that it looks like "Pig".
Pretty much, yes.
Pige = girl "pronounced pia" piger = girls "er ending makes a sound"
Pigen = the girl
Pigerne = the girls
Why is it "pige" and nit " pigen?"
Great to know. Thank you!
People say danish and norwegian are more similar but i find norwegian and swedish to be more similar.
Damn I failed to pronounce this properly 3 times in a row according to Duolingo and I think I did it well each time. Am I deaf? Or just not able to hear some Danish sounds
I cant understand the pronounce, can a native help me with pige?
I am not a native. But say Pee-eh. But with a lazy 'eh' kind of. :)
how to pronounce 'Er' ? eeeeeya ? any suggestions thanks in advance :)
