Is it just me, or is she saying "bön" strangely?
I noticed this too. It seems like two different audio clips are cut together.
It sounds like 'böron'...
The TTS totally has it wrong, here's how you're supposed to say bön https://forvo.com/search/Bön/sv/
Why is ber used here, instead of "säger" or something like it?
"Be" means not only to ask, but also to pray. It's the verb used for saying a prayer.
I imagine it's just a linguistic difference. We say prayers in English - Swedes ask them.
Not really. Be does mean to pray here. See my reply to N30G3N.
De där artiga svenskarna..
svenskarna, I believe... ;)
forvo users say it differently, I think the computerized way makes it sound weird.
Didn't remember this phrase so I guessed with 'I ask a boon'. Shame it was wrong :) So how would you say 'I ask a boon' in Swedish ?
"I am praying" was not accepted. How would "I am praying" be said in Swedish?
