The funny thing is that they speak Bulgarian dialect and they call it Macedonian language, they stole our history. Its kind of sad, and still they hate us for some reason.

If you're using something like "shown" in a sentence where it's kinda obvious that it's supposed to mean "schön", then yeah. I'd expect Americans to pronounce it like this anyway.

It's a tough sound to make. It's close to shern, but with a much softer r sound. The o umlaut took me a lot of practice to get right.

You just have to know how to pronounce Ö and then you say "shön".

Yeah I remember hearing a lot of iieee's in Dresden. A very sexy dialect btw (I lived in Mannheim/Heidelberg then, so I think any other German dialect than kurpfaeltzisch would have been sexy to me)

Shehrn



Is as close as I could estimate it with letters. The reason theres an umlaut is because the sound isnt phoenetic in the first place. Thats why its a tough question to ask on a message board.

I learned "Hochdeutsch" in school and then went to live in Munich for awhile. I love the Bavarian accent but it took me some time to understand it.

The kind of old school Bavarian accent that is spoken in villages is hard to understand even for native German speakers. Sometimes you have no f*cking idea what they are talking about.
