Hej Victor!


Great question! The G is a difficult one!

As you noticed, the G in "gillar" in pronounced like English Y (yillar). It's like this when g is before e,i,y,รค,รถ and after l and r.

The G in "gammal" is pronounced as the G in the English "good". It's like this when preceeding a,o,u,รฅ or unstressed e.



In a word such as "morgonen", in everyday talk we just skip the g and say morronen. It all depends on the word!


I hope this helped you!

I am curious about something: in a previous lesson in this series the g in gรฅr is pronounced as a y in English, whereas here it is pronounced as a hard English g; similarly, earlier in the series, morgonen is pronounced with a hard English g sound, whereas here it is silent. Could you explain when it is best to pronounce the g one way of the other in such instances? Tack!
