This is a much better pronunciation of "ked af det" I think http://www.forvo.com/word/ked_af_det/#da

Why is "I´m really sorry ABOUT IT", not a correct answer? It's pretty much the same isn't it?

Maybe it was not included on the answer list (when the sentence was programmed.)

All I could here for 'ked af det' was KILL EDD! Maybe the Danes should invent a new writing system that actually reflects the pronunciation!

The only languages that reflect pronunciation well are those that have received a written form relatively recently. The Danes have obviously been literate for a long time.

I disagree. Look at Italian, Latin and Greek...

I am really sorry of that!

Is this possible also?

I found this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EDUckRW4sc. I don't know yet what he's singing about, but at least I can listen to his pronunciation of "ked af det". :D

'I am really fed up!' is a very common expression in England.

The Danish language is a tongue twisting slur making ten words sound like one, given to inconsistent pronunciation, spelling and therefore memory loss.

True. Not as bad as English, though. :-)
