whos not pronouncing their v's?

Postby marko » Tue May 25, 2004 1:25 pm

in some songs it sounds fine in others they pronounce their v's like w's, who is doing this? like in the song domingo, why is this being done? i notice people from the bahamas do the same.

In the germanic languages, ie German, Suiss, Vienese, etc, it is (w)erry common to sound the consonents of V,W and F, interchangably, o(v) course!

The english pronouncation for the letters"w" and "v" is not easy for germans ,austrians and german-swiss people.
But even worser is the "th".
There is no lingual equivalent for this in german, so many of us only say "t"
or "f" iinstead of the correct "th"

Yeah I can speak Russian but it's getting it's not that great. My pronunciation is still good but vocabulary is just so so. I can barely read and can't write. I'm thinking I should take a class and get up to speed.

Wow-wow-wow, looka that!!! Russians everywhere! :D

I'm very proud to announce you, my friend, that you were born near me, since I'm STRAIGHT from St. Petersburg. Well, that's a shame that you left in 1980. If you waited for one year, we'd play something on the sand in the backyard. :wink: I mean, in pesochnitsa. :)

HOW COOL!!!

Nevertheless, I don't think I got the idea about all this v's and w's stuff. Could you pleeeeeeeeeeease explain it to me? Thanks!

Yeah, like cockroaches :-)

Wow, Peter, my favourite city! 6 hours from me

Interesting that we have to talk in English here. But such are the rules...
