Long and short vowels - double same and different consonants + a few other notes on this topic

Post by Vanja on Thu Mar 12, 2015 1:05 pm

Hi everyone,

In the Monday class with group 1 we had a discussion regarding the double consonants following a short vowel. My examples were all with double same consonant (ditt, ducka, ladda, villa, sött etc), but the same applies to words with double different consonants. For instance: fakta (facts), sikta (aim), fästa (fasten/attach), bild (picture) etc.

Here are a few more notes on short vowels:

1. If a short vowel is followed by double different consonants, they are always spelled with one of each consonant. I.e. fisk (fish) is spelled with one s and one k, rather than fisskk/fissk/fiskk.

2. In front of the letters L, N and R, we will always have a double consonant, for instance äpple (apple), öppna (open), siffra (number).

3. If the letters D and T are preceded by an N, it will always be a single N, for instance rund (round), sant (true), vinter (winter), rather than sannt/runnt/vinnter.

4. If an M precedes another consonant, it will always be a single M, never two.

5. If M is the last letter of a word, it will in most cases always a single M, for instance hem (home), kam (comb), som (as). Exceptions would be lamm (lamb) and damm (pond).

Looking forward to the next class with all of you!

Kind regards,
Vanja
