Thanks for the complete etymology. I at first heard "glad" as 'glow', so this makes sense as a cognate.

Is the full sentence pronunciation correct? She sounded like she was drowning. This may be a life or death matter if I'm ever in Denmark!

The "d" has a tricky pronunciation here. It's called "the soft D". It's easier if you put your tongue at the tip on the lower teeth and tries to roll the whole word.
