bad pronunciation. they way it's pronounced here, it really does sound like fyre (to fire)...
This sounds almost the same as fire. :( My ear cannot hear the difference between fire and fyrre. :))))
I think I may know why, make the e noise in feel. Make the same noise with pursed/rounded lips and you'll get what the y sounds like in fyrre.
My recommendation to hear the difference is to use the methods described on fluent forever to learn pronunciation. AKA Anki (the model Anki decks on Fluent Forever are key though)
I bet speakdanish.dk's resource on numbers is probably a better resource for pronunciation than the duolingo TTS
IPA and pronunciation http://ordnet.dk/ddo/ordbog?query=fyrre=S%C3%B8g
Yeah, I think I've come across that site before.
Now the things I really can't distinguish are 'fire' and 'fjerde', though I guess that'll come with context.
why is år years and not year is there no plural, it just plurals on the number involved??
stop marking me wrong for not knowing how to spell 'forty' 'fourty' is close enough
