I don't understand why "where do you have the saucepans" is accepted "where do you keep the saucepans" is not accepted.
They're actually both accepted answers, but probably neither of them should be since kastruller is just 'saucepans' and 'the saucepans' are kastrullerna.
Depends on dialect. I usually don’t pronounce it. I often mix up vad and var when I type quickly.
I don't pronounce the 'r' in 'var' but the 'r' still affects over word boundaries to cause the retroflex sound, i.e. va(r) står du becomes va ʂtår du (too lazy to bother use any more IPA than ʂ XD) even though I do not pronounce the 'r' in 'var'.
Interesting, that might hold true for me as well. I might as well say va står du but I’d probably say va ʂka vi sitta. I have to think about it.
Interesting! May I ask where you are from? Myself, I skip the "d" in "vad" but not the "r" in "var".
I see, I was raised not very far from Linköping but have spent most of my life on the westcoast.
I don’t know where I have it from. I’m at my parents’ over Christmas and they said they don’t pronounce it, but they could also be wrong, just that they don’t think about it.
So you guys already know swedish, how comes you are practicing with this app then?
The new TTS says this close to perfectly. (a tiny bit too strong stress on kastruller but otherwise it's excellent)
Shouldn't it be "Where do you keep THE saucepans? It doesn't sound right in English otherwise unless you are talking to an infant.
