- Jag antar att folk uttalar sje-ljudet annorlunda beroende på varifrån man kommer, men de är ju inte alla samma ljud...
"forcera" och "gudskelov" är inte samma ljud, för mig i alla fall.

- In what way? Is the one bilabiaized (w sound after it) and the other only the fricative sound? Or otherwise different?

- "gudeskelov" is further down in the throat. Can't quite explain it.

- Ok I get it.. there was such a distinction in Dutch too once, but I have no idea which one of the two should be further down the throat, that's something from before my time, I guess. Perhaps that's so with Swedish dialects as well, some people know while others don't, or maybe just don't use it.

- Oh I'm sure there's a difference between dialects both how you pronounce the sje-sound and how you percive it: I mean if you don't make a distinction between sounds when you talk it's difficult to hear others making the distinction. But unfortunately I know too little about the dialects to say... I did study Swedish language history some years ago but it didn't particularly interest me then so I don't remember much. I'd like to do it again now, though. It's always like that, isn't it? When you're forced to do something it's not fun anymore..
