"Rida" in Swedish
While I'm not a linguist myself... I don't think many swedes pronounce Rida with a retroflex fricative. Maybe it's used by some dialects, but I would say Alveolar flap is much more common. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:46, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
- You say "maybe." If you don't even know, then we can take it out and someone willing to include it again can source it. — Æµ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɻɛ̃ⁿdˡi] 20:34, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
[ʐ] = [ʒˠ]?
Is it possible to view this sound as a velarized [ʒ], i.e. [ʒˠ] or [ʒ̴], just like the way [ʑ] is equal to [ʒʲ]? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:28, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
- No it's quite distinct from that. [ʒˠ] would have a secondary narrowing (articulation) in the velar area, while [ʐ] is made using the tip of the tongue curled up and without any secondary articulations (and it could, technically, be velarized: [ʐˠ]). --JorisvS (talk) 14:21, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
