Danes: Does the slow version of "barnet" sound correct? Tak!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GigiGottwald

Couldn't hear the "t" at the end of "barnet" no matter how hard I listened!

In dannish it sounds more like a very dim d sound. It's not often you hear a distinctive t

You are so right, ThaFastMan! Thanks for your comment!

"Is not" or "does not"???

Pronunciation on "barnet"? It sounds like bar-nin.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobLeGrand

To me it sounds a bit more like "bar-neth". Either way, the t has a very subtle sound. I can hear it better now after much practice.

I accidentally read this out loud in English for some reason, it marked 2/4 words correct and I passed.
