Is "juice" correctly pronounced here? It sounds like ju-is.
We disabled the audio exercises for this word. It's not good.
It is not disabled now
Unfortunately, disabling the audio only disables the listening exercises for the sentence, so we have no way of completely removing the sound.
Feel free to ask questions about the pronunciation here in the sentence discussions whenever you think it sounds a bit off. :)
Tusen takk for forklaringen din. Ingen datastemme er perfekt ;)
Bruker dere Ivona?
Yes. She's not perfect, but the best of the ones tested.
Luckily, there are only a handful of words she butchers as badly as 'juice', with 'avis' being a clear winner thus far. ;)
I am happy to hear that! The Swedish course became so much better when they changed to Ivona.
ah, so what should "juice" sound like i am wondering...
Pronounce it as a one-syllable word, with a soft j: 'jus'
And what about avis?
It's not disabled for me; still sounds like yu-is.
Do you know if the Norwegian pronunciation is the same as the Swedish? I tried to find it on forvo, but there was no Norwegian version.
It is i pronounced like "Juice" with a soft "j"-sound. I think it is allowed to write it as "jus" as well.
Thanks, like Swedish then. It is sometimes spelt "jos" here :).
Oh, du er svensk. Kult! ;)
In norwegian it's pronounced almost the same way as an Englishman would say it.
It should be ju-s
How does "saft" compare in usage to "juice/jus?"
Saft is more often used for beverages consisting of (cooked) juice from fruit or berries combined with sugar (or sweetener) and diluted with water. But "saft" can also mean juice in a wider sense.
Jeg elsker juice men ikke kaffe... LOL that's pretty much all I can write in Norwegian right now
Is jus acceptable instead of juice? In the grocery store, I see appelsinjus but never anything written as juice.
