For those having trouble pronouncing "Ø"

[deactivated user]

    So I have the album of the multilingual 'Let It Go' song from Frozen. One of the tracks is the Danish Version 'Lad Det Ske' and at the end of the second chorus, Elsa sings this line:

    "Bryder stormen løs"

    She holds the 'ø' for a while and you can really hear how this letter is pronounced. I had listened to this version before but I never paid close attention until tonight. I thought it may be of some use to others so, I thought I'd share.

    It's like your mouth moves to say the letter "oo" but you say "uh" instead.


    I finally get it too


    It's very, very similar to the "oo" sound in "book," but not identical.


    I can actually sing the whole song in Danish and never really thought to hear how certain letters and words are pronounced~ Thanks for the tip~


    Most of the times is like the french "eu".
