Any tips for Danish pronunciation?
Goddag :) I really want to learn Danish, as it is one of my favorite languages (besides English, German, Swedish & Norwegian) but the pronunciation...well, it doesn't seem to follow any rules. I know what the letters should be, but without remembering how the TTS pronounces the word, I don't know how to say it. Does anybody here (mods, native speakers, other learners) have any tips to pronounce the words? Tak!
Well I would say our pronunciation is very logical, but since people don't agree and I currently do not have any resources that'll teach you about it, I'll instead direct your attention towards http://www.forvo.com/ where you can hear things pronounced. If you ever need to have a pronunciation verified you can always just ask on my stream or on the forum.
I find that Danish pronunciation comes quite easy to me, and I think it's in part because my boyfriend is a Dane who was born and raised in Aalborg. So my suggestion is to try to find someone who speaks Danish who can tell you how to pronounce things and when you're not right. Or, if you can't find anyone, you could also listen to music, radio, or podcasts in Danish and that might help.
