I hear the "d" in brød as an "ld" or a lateralized d, is that correct?
It's a soft d and it's hell to pronounce
Anyone found some good instructionals on how to say that cursed ø?
I found this song to be helpful, albeit a bit silly
Yeah that song is pretty ridiculous but very helpful. As an American, much respect to the Danish Alphabet!
Thanks, it's silly but funny!
This is the norwegian pronounviation btw, but Ø and Å is pronounced the same anyway.
it's more or less like German ö or French œ.
You start by pronuncing the o of English "boy" then you push your lips forward as if you were going to give a kiss.
Do it in front of a mirror and after a few tries it will work.
Sometimes it sounds a bit like the vowel in the English word "bird".
Do you know how to pronounce the french word for water, a bit like that.
No, they are very different.
Oo = ø
I love to learn danish
bjørn, børn, barn ... very slight differences in pronunciation.
Børn and bjorne sound very similar in this audio. Taken out of context and given Duolingo nonsensical phrases, this is a poor example. Hope to learn but this is frustrating.
