The pronunciation of the ske-ski-sky-skä-skö sound depends heavily on the region. It can be your everyday "sh", but it may also be rendered as "hw", "h" here being the sound you make when you blow on your hands to make them warm.
There are a few more letter combinations that generate this particular sound, e.g., -tion, -sj-, -stj-, -skj-, -xj-. Pick one way of saying it and stick with it, but keep in mind that "hw" is slightly more "standard".
Except pronunciation the grammar seems a little bit easy. But if the pronunciation is wrong all together which Swede will understand me even if I speak 100 gramatical svenska?
i've listened to the pronunciation 10 times and still don't know how to pronounce spoon lol help
Pie always tastes better with "Cool Fwip". What? You mean Cool Whip. No, "Cool Fwip!" How is "Sked" pronounced like "Fwed"?
SK in sked is pronounced like a "WHU" in english Is this right or is this just a beta issue? <3
The way it sounds on this is similar to llwy which is spoon in welsh. Helps me a little at least!
She's a spoon?? I've heard of people spooning but never a woman being a spoon!
If you got shown that as 'another correct answer', it's because we write all sentences with no contractions, and then Duo auto-generates contractions. Sometimes the machinery generates them where it shouldn't.
"Cuillère" in French. Even if the spelling is quite different, the sound of the word is very similar.
That's it. I'll only eat with forks. No way i'll ever talk about turtles!
I heard that the number 7 (sju) is pronounced as HWUGH. Is this the same for (sked)?
My Swedish teacher called it the "blowing out the candles" sound. Sometimes if I think I'm about to whistle, I make that sound. And another way I thought of was when Stewie in family guy would say "hweat thins" instead of "wheat thins." I can't think of any better way to explain it in text.
Though I keep pronouncing it with a soft 'ch' like in a scottish 'loch'. Or a mish-mash of the two.
its easier than you think if u are part swedish i am and im trying to learn so i can speak to my cousins
The pronunciation of the final D in sked in not as strong as it would be in English - it comes over as almost an L if you don't listen very carefully. Combine this with the SK pronounced HW (heard in older English pronunciation in HWat, HWen, HWy etc, though most younger people lose the aspiration) and you end up with something that I heard as "Hon har en WHALE". She has a whale? What's going on?
