The best example so far which shows how similiar Swedish and German sometimes are. In the first second I thought "That is German" since only a "h" is missing. But unfortunately there is no German course for Swedish and you need to translate in a transitive manner.... (Swedish - German - English or English - German - Swedish)
Can someone confirms if the pronunciation of 'ja' is almost similar to 'jag', especially in informal, fast spoken swedish? And what about 'jo'? Does it sound like 'ja', or more like 'yu' /ju/?
Also, by extension, how do I pronounce 'ju'? Like /ju/ as well? or like the u in 'du', as in /jy/?
How should i pronounce ungefär? Is it uneefär as the TTS says or is it ungefär?
P.S.: i just discovered this by accident trying to hear the word https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary/Swedish/ungef%C3%A4r/507b3f05203ac36ac728c1c69b096275 seems really helpful
Thus, in Italian and in English we use the word "circa" in a different way. In Italian, it is possible to use it even in this way, but in this stand-alone position it is more common to say "all'incirca" or "pressappoco" or "più o meno" or "approssimativamente" (all these words means "approximately").
Are you adverse to the word approximately?
I don't use it that way, but yes, for some speakers, sometimes roundabout is a synonym for approximately although that more often has meant indirectly.
Some other synonyms might be: thereabouts, roughly, give or take, kind'a, kind of, plus or minus, in the ballpark, there or so, in round numbers, pretty much, more or less, sort of, in that neighborhood, in that vicinity, generally, proximately, about there, by and large, something like that, on or about, in that area.
Yes, Phonology sites do exist.
The "g" in this exercise can sound like an English Y. Symbol is /j/. Can be heard here: https://forvo.com/search/Ungefär/
Some sources say this happens if it precedes a nonback vowel and that it also happens if it follows an "L" or "R". http://www.glottopedia.org/index.php/Swedish_Phonology#The_Assimilation_of_.3Cg.3E_and_.3Ck.3E
