Doing a listening exercise... The end of generatie sounds like "si" or "ci" or "zi", not much of a "tee" sound.
Does "tie" make a "tsi" sound when at the end of the word, or is this just part of the speaker's dialect?
it does indeed make a "tsi" sound
I was practising other words... and noticed that "politie" also has a "tsi" sound at the end... So is just something to remember when doing these listening exercises I guess.
Just as '-tion' words in English are pronounced '-shun', the equivalent -tie words in Dutch are pronounced 'tsee'.
It makes a "tsi" sound in the Netherlands and a "si" sound in Belgium ;)
how would you say " the next generation of soldiers"?
De volgende generatie van soldaten
I thought the word for this in Dutch is "die", while "dit" means it. Confused.
