Wow, will you Norwegians please decide what combination of letters give the "sh" sound? :-)
skitten: sk sounds like "sh"
kylling: k sounds like "sh"
skjorte: skj sounds like "sh"
kjedelig: kj sounds like "sh"
I am forever spelling them all wrong. Are they all supposed to sound slightly different?
I am having such a hard time remembering which one is spelled which way. I did read up on pronunciation and figured that some are different. I.e. "kj" reminds me of comedic preteen American characters who wear braces and head gear and can't pronounce "sh," so they pronounce it from the back of their throat. We don't have that sound in our language, but imagine if you had a hair on the back of your tongue and you made a kind of dry gargling action to blow it out.
