Double consonant after short vowel: Nod pron. Nött nut, Fodder feet, pron. Fötter, sidde to sit, pron. sitte.

Note. For some of these words in specific meanings being pronounced with d, see § 106.

105. d like English d; Ex. : da then, blodi(g) bloody, rœd (dd) afraid.

Note. Where the Danish and the common Norwegian orthography have d in the end or middle of words after a long vowel, the common Norwegian pronunciation as a rule either has t or drops the d. In the former case d corresponds to ON. t (see §§ 4 & 6), in the latter to ON. ð.

106. Some words written with d are pronounced with d or t according to the meaning. The voiced explosive as a rule occurs in learned words and those chiefly occurring in higher style.
