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

The t-sound is an error!

Now, you are not the only one. I've just heard it as well.

Is the plural form of "dyr" also "dyr"?

oxford comma y/n in danish?

January 31, 2015


I've seen native speakers say it's personal preference.

February 21, 2015


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.

February 23, 2015


Ah, thank you for that. I wasn't sure.

February 23, 2015


don't think so

February 10, 2015


I'm having trouble hearing a sound difference between "hun" and "hunde." Any advice?

August 26, 2014


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.

is dyr the plural for animal? i am confused... :\

February 21, 2015


Yes. Et dyr, flere dyr (one animal, more animals)

February 23, 2015


Thanks. I was wondering if it was some kind of "always plural, unaccountable, that kind of stuff" word.

Why did she say (et hunde) instead of (hunde)

January 19, 2018


It is an error, as discussed in the most voted comment.

The audio says "horses, one hundred and cats".

June 29, 2019


I said they're expensive, and that is both correct and a valid translation! Color me disappointed.

December 9, 2014


Well, if they were expensive, they would be dyre, wouldn't they? It would work with only one horse, though.

January 26, 2015


Et dyr er dyrt, en hest er dyr, mange dyr er dyre. :)

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.

August 18, 2016


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.

Am I the only one to hear the speaker saying "Heste et hunde og katte er dyr?" or are there other native speakers who have heard this too?
