S called ess, pronounced like hard English s before l, and before k and t, where these letters are not followed by j, in which case sk and st acquire the sound of english sh. This sound is, moreover, heard at all times in sj; and in sk, where the latter is followed by the soft vowels ä, e, i, ö, y. T " tey " as in English. U " oo " like oo in spoon, or when short like u in full. In addition to these, the Swedish u has, however, a sound not precisely analogous to any to be found in more southern European tongues, but which in many instances appears to have an intermediate sound between the English u in pull and the u in shutter. V " vey " as in English. X " eks " " " Y " u " like French u in pure. Z " seyta " as hard English s. Å " awe " like aw in saw. Ä " ey " like a in sale, and when short like e in wren. Ö " eu " like eu in beurre (Fr.) and in peu (Fr.).
