Hola, soy de Argentina
oii eu sou do Brasil
Hello everyone. I am from the UK.
California, United States!
Vad kul - då förstår du svenska också. Men varför studerar man nordiska språk? Planerar du att flytta hit?
Ja, svenska var mitt huvudämne.
Jag tycker att nordiska språk är mycket vacker.
Mal ganz blöd gefragt, aber es schon immer wissen wollte
Euer A mit dem Kreis oben drauf, ist doch extra eingespeichert in der Tastatur? Und spricht man genau dieses a anders aus?
Stupidly asked, but always wanted to know
Your A with the circle on top, is it stored in the keyboard? And do you pronounce exactly this a differently?
It is on the keyboard of the Nordic languages, but not on my Dutch keyboard.
If I set my keyboard to Finnish (which has the same alphabet, as Swedish, even though they don’t use the å), I can type it by pressing [.
And you could of course use an online keyboard like https://www.branah.com/swedish
The pronunciation is either like a long o or like the Korean 어. The name of the letter also sounds like 어.
Haha, I remember in Swedish lectures once my teacher drew the å on the blackboard and told us: “This is not an a with a circle above it!” It’s considered to be a letter on it’s own. In the Swedish alphabet there’s 3 more letters after the z: å, ä and ö. In Norwegian and Danish it’s æ ø å.
O, and in case you’re curious, in Icelandic the ð is pronounced like the th in weather and the þ like the th in clothes.
Btw, do you have the ß on your keyboard? In Dutch it’s called Ringel-S, but I think you have a different name for it.
Thank you, for your explanation
Interesting Sometimes I wished I could go back in time to be more Inquisitive about languages… I didn’t talk much at the time, that’s no different today, We North Germans have short sentences
Yes this is the sharp s bzw. eszett
Ich weiß, es ist weiß
It’s never too late to learn a new language!
I’m also from the north … of The Netherlands in my case. And we’re also known to be relatively quiet.
Eszett? That almost sounds like Hungarian, haha! I think Ringel-S sounds more cute, but I guess that’s too misleading for such a dangerous letter!
In old age, it is unfortunately increasingly difficult to record new Things ones
do you realize i want to talk myself out
Tz Just too lazy, not more
Learning also decreases our chance of developing dementia.
It’s pretty obvious, hahaha!
I’ve got just the thing for you:
Wonderful, always leave that in the background…
Who knows, tomorrow you might start talking Dutch to me!
Geweldig! Het heeft gewerkt!
Now it takes time again
I’m from America!
Namaste! From Nepal here.
I’m from Brazil.
