I do not know if there is a difference in the sound in different computers, but in my computer, it sounds like the voice lisp at the end of the word, as she puts her tongue against the upper teeth on the d-sound. That is not the way we pronounce the word in Swedish. There is no lisp-sound of the Swedish language.

It sounds a little odd, as if ther is a lisp in the end. That is not right.

It sounds to me like she bit her tongue.

To me it sounds like the audio quality is affecting it a little bit, these often sound a wee bit thin and wobbly to me, with very slight artifacts.

Is the second D supposed to sounds like an S?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/19LoveMusic82

No.. You say it exactly as it's spelled.. 'indi-viiiden'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/19LoveMusic82

I would translate this to 'the person' instead... Sounds good in swedish though. (I am swedish speaking, learning english)

That second d pretty much sounds like an l. Just when you think you're beginning to understand Swedish sounds, then BAM heres a d said like an l.
