I never hear the är. Is it just said too quickly and if i say it like slowly so its heard will it sound weird?
From what I understand in normal speech Swedes will say it more like eh and you will barely hear it.
Can someone please write the variations for a shoe, the shoe, shoes and the shoes. Thanks
I think it's related to the same "m" pattern you see in a lot of Indo-European languages--"my" in English, moi/ma in French, mio/mia in Italian, mijn in Dutch, mein in German, моя/моё/мой" in Russian...even in Welsh, fy is a mutated form of "mi" ("me/I").
No, min is if you have one of something, and mina is if you have more than one of something.
Doesn't skon also mean the shoes?
R tends to merge with a following consonant to vecome retroflex - meaning in this case, the rn is pronounced like an n with the tip of the tongue curled back a bit. It also happens with t, d, l and s ... in the case of rs, this makes a kind of thick "sh" sound. This even happens across word boundaries, so Vi talar svenska can sound a bit like "Vi tala shvenska."
