How do you pronounce....

Postby kwalijkje » 2011-06-03, 8:24

...'Que disse voce?' in the Portuguese of Portugal? I think I know how to pronounce each word on it's own, but I get confused which letters to swallow when putting them together. I imagine something like, 'K'dees'vohsay?' Is this right?

Do you understand IPA?

- que disse você [k(ɨ) ðis(ɨ) vɔˈse] (in this case, I don't think there's any difference between the way you pronounce each word individually or in the sentence)

- aborrecidas [ɐβuʁ(ɨ)ˈsiðɐʃ]
"Books permit us to voyage through time, to tap the wisdom of our ancestors."

Native speaker of Portuguese, who's fluent in English, intermediate in Spanish and has some passive knowledge of French. My passion is Greek, which I study along with Dutch. I dream of one day being fluent in Icelandic.
