If you can remember "tomfoolery" you have both empty and full pronunciation-wise
Shouldn't it be: Restaurangen är tomma? since the restaurant is definite.
That would only apply if the adjective comes before the noun. Like Den tomma restaurangen.
The TTS sounds a bit like it's saying "dom" instead of "tom" in my opinion. Can anyone relate to this as well?
It sounds a bit like "toom" to me. Can anyone verify if this is how it's supposed to sound?
I think the guy in the Forvo is pronouncing it like the name Tom. Looking up the ett-version "tomt", I'm quite sure the person is pronouncing it like the noun "tomt" as in "plot". So I'm rather confused - can a native speaker clarify whether the adjectives "tom/tomt/tomma" are pronounced with a short-å or a long-or-short-o sound?
My Swedish friend tells me the "o" in "tom" (empty) is pronounced like the "u" in "full". Hope that helps.
