I thought I heard Min søn leger med til mig
I still don't have a good grip on pronunciation rules for Danish.
"laver mad" i got false previously for writing "cook food", and on this one I have it wrong for writing "makes food". Wtf duo !
Is there a way to recognize the difference in pronounciation between "mad" and "mig"? They sound the same to me when I play the audio slowly.
The vowel sounds are very similar when not stressed but 'mad' still ends in that '-l' sound whereas 'mig' has no final consonant.
Additionally, I would say that "mad" sounds like the English "mel" or "mal", and "mig" sounds like a clipped "my".
Yes, that's how it sounds to me, too. It makes sense - "mad" is a cognate of English "meal" and "mig" is obviously "me".
Really, the soft 'd' in 'mad' is more like a clipped 'l.' Your tongue doesn't touch the roof of your mouth the same way it was with 'l.'
"Mig" sound a little more like "my" only it's shortened, unlike the way Americans drag out its ending.
