Hi everyone. I noticed on a danish newspaper the message "Go' morgen" and i thought the "D" might be silent, but in the pronunciation here i am able to hear it a bit. I am a little confused now, whether to use it or not. Tak

    If you speak properly, and trying to make sure you're speaking clearly, then the d is pronounced a bit, but if a Dane is speaking fluently and quickly they tend to shorten it to just "Go'". Think of it like the Australian English "G'day"

    Go' morgen is just a fancy way of writing it. Generally you will see ' used when omitting one or more letters. It is not grammatically correct to write "God" as "Go'", not last time I checked at least. Go with "Godmorgen" that's the safer bet.

    Why in Danish is there no space in between "godmorgen" and "godnat" (good night)?
