Is there a different pronunciation for smørbrød and smørbrødet? In the listening task I can't hear the difference...

It is! But the audio here is actually not the best example of it, I couldn't even hear it myself.

Thanks Alek, thanks Evan. That answers that.

Yes, there is "e" at the end of "smørbrødet".

It was very difficult for me to hear the schwa sound at the end of "smørbrødet."

Wait, I can't understand any of this comments, how do I actuallu pronounce smørbrødet? I can't tell the difference between smørbrød and smørbrødet

Neither can I. Although GioFoss posted a link below. It sounds like there's an "a" sound at the end of smørbrød with smørbrødet.

If I am ordering a pesto chicken sandwich (my favorite "cheap" meal in Norway) would it be correct to say "pesto kylling smørbrødet?" Also, do Norwegians refer to the store 7-11 as "Seven Eleven" or "Sju Elleve?" Takk!

If ordering it I would ask for "et kyllingsmørbrød med pesto" or "et smørbrød med kylling og pesto". "Et pestokyllingsmørbrød" would also work, but it's a mouthful. If there's a menu then your safest bet is of course to call it whatever it's called on the menu.

People familiar with the franchise call it "Seven Eleven".
