Does anyone have a trick to remember the spellings of "sköldpaddor", as well as of "skärp" and "skjorta"? It always seems to me that some letters are not pronounced in these words. Of course, the obvious rule is that sk followed by ä, j, or ä is pronounced [x]. Yet, I often misspell these words. I would appreciate your help.
Spanish makes the same distinction: tortuga de tierra and tortuga de mar.
Other languages also use the same word for turtle and tortoise, for example Spanish "tortuga".
