Sorry if this has been covered in any previous thread, but I couldn't find it. My question was about all those nouns which end in a silent 'd' in their singular, as, I believe, is the case with "et ord" ("a word", with a retroflex R, I believe at the end). When it becomes definite singular (ordet, or, with the biblical meaning, Ordet), does the 'd' still remain silent (and thus both 'd' and 't' to be silent in this word)? Thus, retroflex "R" sound, followed by the "ai" kind of sound?
I am guessing all, or most nouns with silent 'd' at the end, work like this?
Thanks in advance! Mange takk!
