Being from the southern us, the รถ to me sounds a lot like th a in the word crawfish, without the drawl. Lycka till allihopa.

Hej Pedro,

Swedish can be a tricky language! "Mig" (me) is for example pronounced as the English "may". ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Trevligt, befallning, tillbringade...in all these words, the "g" is not pronounced. Sometimes, I have impression of the "g" also has sound of "k". ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Hej Nedra,


I think both "insjรถ" and "sjรถ" would be translated as "lake" in English. However, if you look it up on a dictionary, "insjรถ" is a lake cut off from the ocean, surrounded by land. "Sjรถ" is just a larger collection of water surrounded by land. But really, they're both lakes. ๐Ÿ˜œ


Maybe this youtube video I found can help you with the pronunciation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHs7xB8MOAs


Good luck! ๐Ÿ˜‡

Hallo! I am trying to get a phonetic (and visual) pronunciation of the Swedish word sjรถn (lake in English). I don't see anything in the basic Swedish language sounds for the "sj" combination, but the audio on the internet translator gives it a 'k' sound, and I can't catch the รถ very well.


What is the difference between sjรถn and insjรถ ?


Please respond to nedra.gallagher@gmail.com.


Thank you.

Hej Gary,


You have understood the rule correctly and I believe the "e" in egendom is meant to be a hard vowel and therefore it would still be included in the rule. ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ‘

A question about pronunciation of g and soft vowels. The rule seems pretty clear - so, for example - gรคst, ger, igen, torg, etc all take a "y" sound. But what about a word like egendom - property - in which the g is hard. Is this simply an exception to the rule and must be memorized or am I misunderstanding the rule? Tusen tack
