They can both be ’hat’, though a mössa is either a (knitted) one you wear in the winter that usually covers your ears (as in Canadian Eng. tuque, a beanie or a knit cap), or some sort of cap like the Swedish graduation cap which is called studentmössa. Hatt is more like a cowboy hat, a high hat, a sun hat or a panama hat or similar.
I have a question about the Swedish "i" sound. I have heard it in bil, vit, and many other words where it sounds like it is stressed or there is something in your mouth while you say it. For example, in this video, you can hear the Swedish girl on the right say "bil." It is called "Language Challenge Italian vs. Swedish" by Tia Taylor. It is on YouTube. Does anyone know why or how to pronounce it? Tack så mycket.
Well by watching this guy here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6mziH0A6vQ and reading some posts here https://www.reddit.com/r/Svenska/comments/6o2ky0/how_to_pronounce_the_swedish_iy_sound/ i learned that the swedish i is transcripted as /i:/ and this basicaly means it is the same as italian i. Which goes like english 'ee' as in tree. It is also mentioned above that the short version of the letter 'i' as in 'bil' should be pronounced like english 'i' as in stick or it.
