It would be cool if someone could pronounce all of these letters so that we would know what they sound like (obviously we would prefer a native speaker or someone who is fluent)

I think this sounds something like the consonant in the word "cue" (IPA: /kj/, or /kʲ/), but I don't know the language, so I don't feel qualified to add that to the article. Michael Z. 2005-06-4 06:30 Z
Some articles on Cyrillic letters have links to sound files. I'm sure there's a sound file somewhere waiting to be linked. AEuSoes1 06:16, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
The pronounciation of ќ is something like cute. --Daniel Tanevski talk 14:05, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

The pronounciation of ќ and ѓ I think is the same as Latvian ķ [tj] as in kaķis (cat) and ģ [dj] ģenerālis (general) and Hungarian ty and gy.

Many many months later I am replying to the posts here... "ќ" is close to "ch" as in "church". "ѓ" is close to the first phoneme of "George". These are not exact sounds, but they are close enough to the point where a native english speaker would not be able to tell the difference between this and the exact phoneme used in Macedonian.XJeanLuc (talk) 21:27, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
You are not right. Тhe "ќ" sounds like "church" only in some of the dialects in Macedonia. The same goes for the "ѓ" sound. In the macedonian literature language it is pronounced as soft k and soft g. Example: повеќе [povekje], меѓу [megju], where the "j"-sound is more or less the same as the "y" in the English word "Yes".--Dimotika (talk) 20:19, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
