pronunciation of "og"

Postby littlepond » 2017-05-04, 9:53

Hei! I read that the "g" in "og" is almost always silent, but a book that I am using has audio saying the "g" as well in the sentence "Fint, takk - og du?"

When to know when to pronounce "g" of "og" and when not to do so?

Tusen takk!

Whether the "g" in "og" is silent or not depends on the dialect (and, to a certain degree, the sociolect). Most people don't pronounce the "g" in "og" these days.
