Since 'vatten' ends in -en, does that mean it's 'the water,' and 'vatt' would be just plain 'water'?
How do you pronounce "jag"? I'm just little confused on how to pronounce it, thanks :)
Swedes normally omit the g when we're speaking and make it sound like "yah", as this gives the language a more natural flow. The G is spoken if we're emphasising the word or are enunciating it for clarity, etc, in which case we'd say "yah-g" with a hard g.
I think, if you're not emphasizing it, you elide the 'g,' and it sounds like 'yah.' (And if the following word starts with a vowel, it just kinda blends, so 'Jag är' sounds like it would be spelled 'yaer' in English.)
I can't hear the last R in "dricker" in this sentence. Although I can when I play the word alone. Any thoughts on this?
