I'll leave that for someone who knows Danish, but this reminded me of a line my late paternal grandfather used liked to draw attention to: i å ä e ö Standard Swedish: _i ån är det en ö_ "in the river there is an island". Notice that there's nothing corresponding to _det_ "there" in the småländska version. Pronunciation is boringly unexciting; [i: o: E: e: 2:]. Andreas
