Correction here, Y is always pronounced as the ü in über (german).
red devil, what do you know about Arbëreshë , spoken in Italy?
When a j follows a t, is it pronounced like a long q, or are the two sounds clearly articulated?
So basically, when you see ë at the end of a word after a consonant, the vowel before that consonant gets lengthened?
Please tell me - any ideas for what to do if i can't roll my "rr"'s - I got told off for walking down a spoon the other day (luge - spoon/rruge - road)!

Now, I have a question. Are there other ways of saying "Hello" and "Good-bye", namely, shorter versions?
In Russian, for example, you can say "Привет", "Здравствуй", or "Здравствуйте" for "hello", with increasing degrees of formality. Or, compare English "Hi", "Howdy", "Hey", etc.

Q – there is no English sound for this – you can pronounce it like cky in stockyard
Rr – like rr in hurrah
