Its a slight roll on the r (barely) and the v is really almost silent it seems
Does this refer to a letter of the alphabet or a letter; as in a message in the mail?
"Brev" refers to a letter as in a message in the mail. "Bokstav" is a letter in the alphabet. Good luck! :-)
Oh thank you! For some reason I assumed it was letter in the alphabet thanks for clearing that up
The pronunciation for brev https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File%3ASv-brev.ogg
Yes. "flickan läser" = "the girl reads", "flickor läser" = "girls read"
Do you use the same verb for every form? Like 'läser', is this for me, you (singular), he, she, we, you (plural) and they?
Because it's a definite singular noun. If you say "en flickan" you're saying "a the girl". En flicka is a girl, flickan is the girl.
Most of the words that indicate person are using en- suffix.. except ett barn,ett öga, ett öra, ett hjärta.. correct me if it is wrong
I am having a more general problem that the audio cuts off before the phrase is completely spoken. Just started today - never had this problem in the last 10-ish days that I have been using duolino. Anyone know what I am doing wrong here?
b - trilled r - eh - v
I can't think of any really good word where the Swedish 'e'-sound is used in English. It's the same as the German 'e', and the same sound can be heard when some people from Wales, Scotland and Ireland speak English (e.g. in the word "break", which is more or less pronounced "br-eh-k", and "heat" - almost like "h-eh-t"). The 'e'-sound used when the TTS says 'brev' is fairly good (even though the ending 'v'-sound in that word is bad).
