А чомуж не 'блоґ' з буквою 'ґ' а 'г'? Це є 'bloG' а не 'bloH'....

    Many Ukrainians pronounce it with г and not ґ. For example, here are few links to TSN videos:

    As you can hear, it's clearly pronounced with г and not with ґ. The audio for this sentence is also pronounced with г.

      How is this forum post relevant?


      Would it be wrong if I always say блоґ? Or any other loanword with ґ?


      This problem alreafy had the solution completed


      Same happened to me


      Is this natural to say:
      "I am reading the blog, he is listening to the radio and she is reading the book."?


      "The blog" and "the book" are correct if you've already referred to them; otherwise, we would say "a blog" and "a book". "The radio" (rather than "a radio") is usual in English, because it's understood to refer to "the system of broadcast radio" (with which we expect most people already to be familiar). "He is listening to a radio" would draw attention to the radio receiver. So usually we talk about listening to "the radio".
