Norwegian pronunciation on YouTube

Norwegian - Tones, Y, I & U sound

Examples given include hender (T1) 'hands' and hender (T2) 'happens'.

I think Norwegian u sounds tighter, more like the vowel in the Scottish pronunciation of 'house' than the vowel in 'balloon'.

Karin's demonstration of Norwegian y is esp. interesting. Note the wide open, rounded lips.
