It really sounds like "restaurangen"...
It's a French loan word, which is why it doesn't follow the regular Norwegian pronunciation rules. You'll hear many words ending in -ant or -ent pronounced in a similar fashion, though there are exceptions.
The pronunciation here is correct.
I would sure hope so!
Sounds a little sarcastic, this one.
So is g silent here?
The guide says "[g], [j] before an i; silent before a j; silent after an i and sometimes an a or o"
Is that wrong, and when is it silent? \
It can be silent here, but some speakers will pronounce it. The same is the case for some other words with "lg" such as "selger" (salesman) and "følge" (follow), but it's not a steadfast rule.
It's a French loan word like many others, and the '-ant' is pronounced as '-ang'
This is about selger
Why no sells us food
Why is "...sell us food" wrong?
