I'm curious, as pronounciation in swedish is probably one of the trickiest ones should I pronounce lunch like "Lunch" or "Lunsh"
In other words, is "ch" in swedish "ch" or "sh"?
Depends on what you mean with ch. If you mean like tsh, the answer is no. Lunch in Swedish is /lɵnɧ/ or /lɵnʃ/, if you're into phonetics.
I'm still confused. Is it like ch in church or ch in loch (the Scottish way) or a kk sound? I don't ever sound ch like tsh.... Thanks
ch in 'church' sounds like 'tsh' in English - but lunch in Swedish does not have that sound. The 'ch' in Swedish lunch can sound either like 'sh' [ʃ] like in e.g. 'show' in English or like the [ɧ] sound that you don't have in English – it's similar to that Scottish loch sound but not exactly the same. Wikipedia has a pretty good article about the sound: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sj-sound
I'm having trouble understanding the pronunciation for the word "the boy", or 'Pojken". May anyone be able to help with this?
Did English take the word "lunch" from Swedish, or Swedish from English?
Thanks. I'm interested to find out which English words come from Scandanavia - we forget that part of our linguistic heritage, just talking about the Germanic and Latin/French components.
