By the way, we have a brand of juice called "Садочок" (which is a diminutive of сад) here in Ukraine :) So this sentence always reminds me of that
Aight, that's enough learning for me, I'm gonna be using this phrase a lot. Watch out Україна, here I come.
I'd like to know why the ''д'' sound more like a ''г'' or ''к''? Is there any rule of pronunciation to follow?
It sounds like a pretty clear "d" to my ear. The best rule of pronunciation to follow is that Ukrainian is almost 100% phonetic.
It sounds like a D to me, try using headphones in a quiet place the first time you go through a lesson; it makes it so much easier to figure out what the sounds are.
I happen to be using my $750 custom in ear monitors and it definitely sounds like a /k/ sounds to me. I played it several times.
Should "д" be pronounced as a "d" or as a "g"? Here it sounds more like g?
If it's in the beginning or middle of a word, it sounds like the "d" in "dog," but at the end of a word, it's pronounced like the "t" in "top". This is called "final obstruent devoicing". Same goes for ґ and к, в and ф, and б and п.
why is garden pronounced like "sar-de" in some parts, but here it is pronounced differently?
