How do you say "trust me" in dutch?
Vertrouw me, ik ben een ingenieur!
You just made me laugh so horribly. And that's worth a lingot.
when do you pronounce 'g' like 'sh' instead of the more breathy
sound as in goed
When it's a loanword from French, I'd assume.
For this translation, I would expect the dutch version to contain also an "een". Why is that missing?
You can add een, but when describing someone's occupation, it is common to omit it. Eg. Jan is leraar en zijn vrouw is schrijfster. Sanne is eerstejaars student
It's optional when referring to occupations.
Does the g in 'ingenieur' sound like the g of engineer or like the sound 'sh'. I couldn't be sure.
Kind of like the sound 'sh'.
Mag ik een IFA-transcription van 'ingenieur', alstublieft?
Here you'll find a list of words, transcribed to IPA. They are alphabetically ordered, just check under the 'i':
Actually the jobs are really simple for french speaker ! Lucky me! Acteur ingenieur directeur hahaha
Which is no surprise actually, Dutch vocabulary consists of about 20% loanwords. More than 1/3 of these loanwords are French.
