Video answer: Learning svenska #4 - silent letters, g & 'och'
Top best answers to the question «Is g silent in swedish»
g is pronounced as y when followed by e, i, y, ä, or ö. So Swedish 'gäst' sounds like the first syllable in 'yesterday'. Before a, o, å, u it is pronounced hard as in English 'go'… k is pronounced somewhat, though not exactly, like sh, as in 'ship' before e, i, y, ä, ö.
