Pronunciation of 'dyret'
Could someone please explain the pronunciation of 'dyret'? Because in the app, it sounds more like 'doo-da' than anything else, and I'm wondering whether it's me, or the app.
I would pronounce it as 'deer-eh'. Sometimes the recording of the word cuts off letters for some reason, I few times i have heard 'den' pronounced '-n', with the first part completely missing.
Yeah, it's not the most accurate. Thank goodness for songs and movies in the language – they much more natural.
To be fair, in some cases it's natural to contract "den" to "n". For instance, I would say "Jeg har sett'n" for "Jeg har sett den". I think it happens especially when it follows a "t" or "d" sound, because the sounds are articulated in the same place in the mouth.
