Speak Swedish part 7

The previous Speak Swedish post got a comment about the swedish word “slut”.

It is not the same as the word in English. Just look at this.



In English the word means something totally different 


We pronounce the word differently, but when we write the letters only, who can then tell the difference?

Languages are fun! Or is it languages is fun?

I wasn’t the brightest student in the English classes 🙂

  1. Languages are fun, Anna. The word “Languages” is the plural of Language and the verb is changed to “are” to agree with the subject – Languages.

      • Haha. So true. In German, ‘Nacht’ (night) is often pronounced by Americans with a hard ‘K’ sound, which, of course says ‘naked’ instead of ‘night’ the tendency to ‘correct’ inter labial sounds ( sounds caused by placing the tongue on the roof of the mouth And the teeth to make sss sound for Mach Nichts = mox nix, by American soldiers who actually spend very little time learning the host language.
