I was so happy when I saw this! I've been having a bit of trouble differentiating words and I've wondered how this sounds to someone who is Norwegian.
Eh, not in all dialects, though. Some pronounce it like bjørn'n or just bjørn
Thanks. So if I speak and pronounce the "en", is it ok? I speak spanish so it is complicated to learn some foreing sounds..
This sounds exactly like how the voice says bjørn to me. Am I missing something?
That is very subtle. I suppose I'll have to get used to it on this course, :P
Det er litt rart at duolingo ikke har et system hvor brukere kan si setningene inn i en mikrofon og laste opp. Robotstemmen kan være vanskelig å følge med på av og til
I only mention it because "hånden" is difficult to understand for a beginner even when spoken by a person. The robot voice performs better, under A/B tests, than real voices, even professional ones. I don't think a system like Forvo would compare, honestly.
And to me it sounds like it isn't just one elongated "n" sound, but it shortly increases in intensity again after the "bjørn" part.
Reminds me of how many American's pronounce the name Clinton as "Clint'n", leaving out the "o" almost entirely.
How can i make the norwegian letters on my phone keyboard? I keep getting them wrong because i'm using the english o and a.
Hold on the key, it should open up a list of letters like œ, ő, ø etc for 'o'
