One of the most important phrases I have learned so far!
This is clearly the most important sentence in the entire course.
Is it common to drop the 'n' and other soft terminal sounds like this, before diphthongs? It sounds like the speaker is saying "kejeg" instead of "kan jeg".
Not sure whether it's the diphthong that's responsible, but Danish tends to drop endings a bit in connected speech so "kan" often turns into "ka". (With a Danish "a" sound, that often sounds a bit like an "e" to others.)
There is a Youtube video that addresses that same subject. The words start strong and then kinda trail off.
April 1 2019 When she says it, it sounds like: calf on ou. When he says it, it sounds like: k f aw en øl. Luckily for me, it was a written sentence.
Jaysus she's saying that very fast! I had to resort to the turtle
What does that mean, you had to resort to the turtle?
I had to listen to the slower pronunciation, the one that you get when you click on the turtle :)
Oh yes, sorry.
Is this asking if it's possible to obtain a beer or is it simply the phrase used when ordering a beer? (British speaker - I think this is how Americans order a drink, but not sure).
From my understanding,
"Få" is to recieve
"Hente" is to pick something up
I can't hear jeg in normal speed. Is it dropped in everyday speech?
No, not dropped, but the sound is shortened considerably. Here "kan jeg" is more "ka ya" and almost said as if it is one word.
Why not kan jeg "hinte" en øl? Is it correct too?
What is the difference between "hente" and "få" ??
Is it possible to use "hente" here????
'May I have a beer?' was not accepted. Is that right?
