I have been funbling around the words kött flaskött and nötkött
Excuse me. How does "De" pronounced?
It's just one of those weird spellings that they haven't gotten around to updating for traditional reasons, English has loads.
Does "k" make the "sh" sound in Swedish?
k sounds like [k] before the so-called 'hard' vowels a, o, u, å
and like [ɕ] before the so-called 'soft vowels' e, i, y, ö
There are some exceptions, but usually those are loan words.
Tack så mycket, the IPA was really helpful!
I guess I'm drawing a blank because i thought pork was "nöttkött."
Nah, nötkött is beef.
You know, I was thrown by the answer being "griskott"? New word to me! :)
Im getting "griskott" here too. Never heard of it before now, thought that pork was fläskkött.
It's apparently both??? It can get a bit confusing-
You really should say "fläsk" or "fläskkött". "Griskött" sounds a bit awkward and gross.
i know im late but a good tip for this is nötkött is like saying not meat almost :) hope this helps anyone
What about griskött
Sure, that works too. It's more like saying pig meat in English, but it's ok.
Is skinka more Finnish-Swedish and not so much used in Sweden proper, and that's why it's not here, or is there a difference in meaning? I've only ever come across skinka and not fläskkött.
skinka is 'ham'.
interesting that there are different answers between app and website
I thought it was 'not kott' but as it turns out I left out a few too many spaces and it corrected me to 'griskott'. I've never heard that word in Swedish or on doulingo. Kinda weird and I'm not sure what it means.
Ever since the upgrade with the crowns, there appears to be a new speaker in some of the lessons. In this case, they are pronouncing 'de' as DAY not DOME.
Is there a resource to help get more in depth with pronunciations?
