Ja, kommer augusti efter juli! Hmmm, in English, we say it "comes" after, but how should I have said that here?

Not sure this answers your question, but it's true that we say Augusti kommer efter juli in Swedish, using kommer.

I read that some Swedes named "Paul" will spell their name "Pål" — is augusti ever spelled ågusti?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Arnauti

No, and pronouncing it that way is pretty rare. The speaker says augusti where you can clearly hear both the A and the U sound, but I mostly hear it said as though it was written just with an A.

This reminds me of that meme with the man and the butterfly XD

Can someone please explain the intonation of questions? In this phrase I hear the stress on the word augusti and then the intonation descends again. Thanks!
