Finnish Audio Request

14 Words / 1 Recordings / 1 Comments
Note to recorder:

I keep hearing "rakkaus" as "rak kaus", "olutta" as "olut ta" and so on. Could you please record both so that I can try to hear the difference? I know that "rak kaus" etc. doesn't exist.

rakkaus - rak kaus
olutta - olut ta
ei todellakaan - ei todel lakaan


  • Finnish double consonants ( recorded by Drasa ), Neutral Helsinki accent

Didn't quite catch the point of your request. "Rak", "kaus", "ta", "todel" and "lakaan" are not Finnish words, so how I am supposed to pronounce them natively? Also, you present a difference between two ways of spelling the words, but that's only a difference in writing system. It doesn't have to have any kind of correlation with the pronunication.
