Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 In many of the dialects that have an apical rhotic consonant, a recursive Sandhi process of retroflexion occurs wherein clusters of /r/ and dental consonants /rd/, /rl/, /rn/, /rs/, /rt/ produce retroflex consonant realizations: [ɖ], [ɭ], [ɳ], [ʂ], [ʈ]. In dialects with a guttural R, such as Southern Swedish, these are [ʁd], [ʁl], [ʁn], [ʁs], [ʁt].
  2. Swedish /ɧ/ is a regionally variable sound, sometimes [[[voiceless velar fricative#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
    This page is a soft redirect.xʷ]]]
    , [[[voiceless bilabial fricative#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
    This page is a soft redirect.ɸˠ]]]
    , or [ʂ]
  3. /r/ varies considerably in different dialects. It is pronounced alveolar or similarly in virtually all dialects except South Swedish dialects where it it is uvular, similar to the Parisian French "r". At the beginning of a syllable, it can also be pronounced as a fricative [[[voiced palato-alveolar sibilant#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
    This page is a soft redirect.ʒ]]]
    as in English "genre" or "vision".
  4. 4.0 4.1 4.2 4.3 4.4 Before /r/, the quality of non-high front vowels is changed: /ɛː/ and /ɛ/ lowered to [æː] and [æ]; /øː/, and /œ/ are lowered to [œ̞ː] and [œ̞], though the diacritic is not included in the chart above for simplicity.
  5. 5.0 5.1 5.2 5.3 5.4 Vowels spelt u, o are compressed vowels. Those spelt ö, y, å, on the other hand, are protruded; see roundedness for details.
