Somehow in the normal-speed audio, I hear another Word before 'hunde', which sounds kind of like 'et'. Am I the only one?
I hear the same. And touching the word hunde alone it seems like "tuun'e". Is the 't' sound an error or a way to distinguish between hunde and hun?
The 't' is definetely an error! Usually you distinguish between those two by the length of the word. They sound similar, but hunde still is longer and if you listen closely, you can also hear the d. But there is no t sound whatsoever
It's not. It's banned. At least when listing things. I am 95% certain of this, though there might be cases where you have "dog and cat, and chicken and mouse". Or some silly sentence like that, but in a regular list you do not use the comma before "og" in Danish.
I'm having trouble hearing a sound difference between "hun" and "hunde." Any advice?
They are very similar, especially in quick, spoken Danish, when they are barely distinguishable. However, if said slowly, "hunde" has a glottal stop where you would expect the "d" (which is silent) and a very short "e" sound after, whereas "hun" has neither of these.
Thanks. I was wondering if it was some kind of "always plural, unaccountable, that kind of stuff" word.
I said they're expensive, and that is both correct and a valid translation! Color me disappointed.
Well, if they were expensive, they would be dyre, wouldn't they? It would work with only one horse, though.
Does any one else have less and less of typing exercises and more of just pressing the words together to form a sentence.
I really preferred writing it.
I think it is dependent on your device. If you are using the mobile app, the typing exercises become words that you place in. On a PC you have to type each letter (preferred for me as well).
The "word typing" on the mobile app seems to take away the crucial spelling aspect of learning a language.
I also remember better when I key in the full word. You can turn off the Wordbank. It toggles between keyboard and wordbank - just touch one and the prompt words vanish.
