What connotations does traditional have in sweden? Would this mean, for example, that they have abandonned cultural or traditional ways?
Out of curiosity, how is the "t" in the "tion" part of "traditionella" pronounced?
I'm asking this because different languages often have their own surprising yet rather consistent way of pronouncing the "t" in "tion."
For example, in English the "t" in "tion" is usually pronounced like the "sh" in "shoe." (For example: "nation," "motion," "tradition.")
In this Duolingo exercise, it sounds like the "t" in the "tion" part in "traditionella" is pronounced like an "f", but I could be mishearing it.
It's the swedish sj- sound, and its pronunciation varies somewhat. Some pronounce it like an aspirated h while others give it a fw- like sound. There's a good video on it that I'll try and find for you.
Would it be possible to say, "Dom är inga traditionella män"? Like more German style?
I don't think so, at least not without taking some unnecessary liberties with the original sentence. "Inte" is "not", "inga" is "no" as in "not any, none".
It's if the error matches another word in the database. I don't know if that is also if it closely resembles another word in the database. But that's what I know :)
