How is ch pronounced in swedish?
I heard that in duolingo like mute.
It depends on the word.
- Och is pronounced like ock. (with a k-sound)
- Choklad and chef is pronounced with the sj-sound (like in sjuk or sjunka)
- Chili and cheddar is pronounced with the tj-sound (like in tjuta or tjugo)
Some can vary; I say cheddar with the sj-sound as in sjuk, and in e.g. lunch people use the sj-sound in the very south, and the tj-sound in other dialects.
Mjo, jag kom på det precis. ^^ Själv uttalar jag båda med tj-ljudet (Stockholmare) och tänkte därför inte på uttalsvariationerna.
och is usually pronounced without any consonant, like a short 'å'. When emphasized, it can be either a long 'å' sound or as 'ock'.
