I'm doing 'type what you hear' exercise and wonder, if there is any difference in pronunciation between 'pigen spiser æblet' and 'pigen spiser æbler'?

Æbler - "aybla", and æblet - " ayblelth" with the lth meaning a Danish soft D

There is definitely a difference, but in everyday speech it is very subtle.

I am having a lot of trouble with this. I wish it weren't so subtle. I don't hear it at all. T^T

Here is a pronunciation for æbler (apples).

And here is a pronunciation for æblet (the apple).

No, there is not much of a difference, but I hope you found it a little bit helpful anyway. =)
