This one sounds sort of similar to english..
A lot of swedish words sound like english, for example: glas, man, fisk, ect ect
And we made it to Shell City!
Whenever I see this, I get reminded of the song from the Spongebob Squarepants movie "Now that we're men."
Huh.. No difference in sound between singular and plural of mann?
"man" is with a soft and clear "a", just like in Dutch; män is pronounced "men", like in English.
... we're men in tights
Exactly the first thing I thought first time I saw that phrase! Great!
it is so unfair i just capitlaized one letter and they took it as wrong.this sounds kind of like english some words in swedish sound like englis words
I've noticed that the speaker likes to pronounce är like ee sometimes. I find it just a bit humorous.
är is pronounced like air or ear (depending on what part of the country you live in), and the r is usually not pronounced (silent). Should you pronounce the r, then it's a rolling r, kind of like the Spanish r or Bavarian r.
08_15 ; Depending on where you're from (The "rolling R", that is)
if it is a rolling r then how do they pronouns names that starts with an R
With a rolling r, of course! :-)
Though in some accents almost all r are silent - not a thing I'd advise you to learn, but it's nice to know if you happen to speak to someone using that accent.
Would "we are husbands" also have been correct?
is man sound mann or mam ?
"man" ((one) man) sounds like "mann"
"män" ((several) men) sounds like "men"
I cannot hear
