D . . . is for dog.
(ȯ, as in the aw in saw)
French: (le) chien
Pronunciation: (luh) sheeyehN*
Italian: (il) cane
Pronunciation: (eel) KAH•neh
Spanish: (el) perro
Pronunciation: (ehl) PEH•rroh**
Note: le, הַ, il, and el = the.
*The capital N signifies the nasal quality of the vowel sound that comes before it. The N itself is pronounced softly.
**rr = trill: Learn to pronounce the rr by practicing saying the letter T or D: Note that your tongue gently touches the back of your upper front teeth. Now say the word perro instead of T or D. While doing so, exhale as you try to make your tongue vibrate in this position. Don't worry if you can't achieve the rolling rr's. Many cannot do it. But you'll still be understood.
