Re: Pronunciation of TrettioŚriga Kriget

The Ś is pronounced as "oa" a bit like the english word "awe".
So basically it would be trettio-awe-ree-gha.
Now,Kriget is simple.Something along the line of "kree-get".

I apologize if I'm not making it clearer.English is not my mother tongue.
Perhaps a real Swede can chime in here wink

Re: Pronunciation of TrettioŚriga Kriget

I normally say "Trettio-", then mumble a bit, "-ga Kree-get"

Re: Pronunciation of TrettioŚriga Kriget

Ah, but why is the G in Kriget pronounced as a hard G, rather than the sort of Y sound heard in names like FrŲberg?

Re: Pronunciation of TrettioŚriga Kriget

In Kriget the G is before a vowel. In Froberg it isn't.
Same goes for the K in Kriget by the way. Why not pronounce it as "sj" like in KYRKA ? It's "sj" before a vowel and a proper K before a consonant. At least that makes the most sense to me big_smile
