Is there a possibility to get a visual keyboard? Currently I need to either switch my keyboard to one with accents, or find the character in question and copy it from somewhere else.
If on have a smart phone that is Android download the google keyboard. If you hold down on a letter it will then pop up different versions of the letter like if i hold a i can get à â ä á ã or å
Hey Jacob I have a KIDIBUZZ cellphone with an android thingie or whatever its called
You can have a Swedish keyboard layout on your desktop/laptop by having a Swedish keyboard layout. Here are the steps to get it. It will provide you with the Swedish letters and the puncuation is all mixed around too. But I got use to it. 1. Go to control panel 2. Region and language. 3.Change keyboard layout 4. Now you go to add... To add a language for a keyboard layout. 5. Choose your selected language 6. Add it and click apply 7. Now you need the language bar. Go back to where you went to region and language. 8. Language bar 9. Choose where you want it. I have mine floating on desktop, but you can have yours anywhere. 10. Check on your desktop to see if it says the language you wanted. Your keyboard would be changed.
I might of messed up a few steps, as I did this a long time ago. But if you complex the steps, you can probably get a certain keyboard layout. ;3
Just get Google keyboard and long press on the alphabet you want to give an accent to
Nope... :( if you hold it down on desktop in just goes "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa"
Sharu i dont have the right phone to do that even if there is one on my screen.
On an iPhone or iPod Touch or iPad you can add keyboards that are in different languages by going to Settings > General > Keyboard > Add Keyboard > Select Language and then switch when you're typing by pressing that little globe button in the bottom left corner of the keyboard.
Often we pronounce is like "ja" (but not like the German "ja", mind you!). The "g" is often silent, or very quiet, in most of the dialects in Swedish.
I'm having trouble with the pronunciation of "Pojke." It seems to sound like "Polkyeh" rather than what I thought would be more of a "Poyke."
Any english word that sounds like it?
I'm just starting out, but I think there are two genders in Swedish: ett means äpple is neuter, and en means pojka is - hm, I don't know what it's called, but my understanding is that it's a mix, or blend, or amalgamation of masculine and feminine. Have you studied other European languages? It's common for (European) languages to have two or three genders, which affect grammar (noun declensions, verb conjugation, etc.).
Äpple is apple, im not entirely sure what youre talking about but i can assure you that äpple is not a gender, it is a fruit...
I must admit Im finding it difficult to pronounce Jag ar, when I listen to the the recording it sounds more like "Jarga" ?
So true! I listen to it multiple times, though which helps me, but they dont pronounce very well
when I listen to the A.I. voice thing "jag ar" always sounds like "Jag har"
As adjectives, svenska is the plural or definite form. svenske is a form that can optionally be used for masculine beings. You never have to use it, but it's common in some cases. For instance "the Swedish cook" in the Muppet Show is commonly known as den svenske kocken in Swedish – possible since he's male.
Where can I find learning guide for soundrill? I am a non-English speaker so I can't understand what you were writing with /ja: e:/.. Do you mean a and e are a long vowel with ":"??
Did anyone notice that the voice pronounced the "en" with a rising tone when you hover over it?
Does anyone have tips for Dutch people learning Swedish. I think it is so hard to translate all the words when you are Dutch.
(1) I didn't think most of them are that hard from a Dutch perspective, but words like "pojke" are indeed quite different from their Dutch counterpart. A good way to remember that specific word is to remember the one with the "j" is a "jongen," and the one without the "j" is a "meisje" (okay, they both have a "j" in them, but in "meisje" it's in the dimunitive form (i.e., verkleinwoord)), so that doesn't count.
(2) I used tricks like that throughout high school for learning German and French vocabulary, and they always worked wonders. Another good one to remember "inte" is that it kind of looks like someone took "niet" and mashed up the letters ;)
(3) You should also realize you have a big advantage over native English speakers in learning Swedish, because Dutch word gender is fairly similar to Swedish word gender. They both have "common" and "neuter" words, the main difference being that Dutch makes the distinction in its definite articles ("de" and "het"), while Swedish does in its indefinite articles ("en" and "ett", but note they also apply in adjectives, possessive pronouns and definite forms). As such, you can guess the gender of a lot a Swedish words fairly well, while native English speakers have a really hard time doing so. For example, you know it's "en ko" because it's "de koe," and "ett hus" because it's "het huis." While words genders in both languages don't always match, they do more often than not.
Hope that helps, veel succes! :)
Just started learning it, I'm so new to the language. I feel like it's going to be hard for me to learn it
