Accordingly, what is the sound of Å?
This is how it sounds like. A long å is pronounced like how Australians pronounce the vowel in thought, but it is mostly followed by a short schwa.
Also Know, how do you say Ä? The short Ä is pronounced like the “e” in the word “bet” in English. It is like saying “eh”. The long Ä on the other hand is simply taking the short one and keeping the sound, so making it longer. It is like saying the “ay” in “say”.
Moreover, how do you pronounce å in Swedish?
The å in Scandinavian alphabets represents two sounds, one short and one long.
- The short version represents IPA /?/.
- In Swedish, the long version represents IPA /oː/. In Danish and Norwegian, the long version is pronounced IPA /?ː/.
