Can anyone tell the difference in pronunciation between

dinn :

and

tinn :

in Scottish Gaelic?

The pronunciations are given in Am Faclair Beag: http://www.faclair.com/

I can't tell the difference.

Cian.

Normally initial t- is aspirated as in English, and initial d- is like a non-aspirated t (it's pronounced as t in "still")

Are you talking about while they are broad?

The two sound the same to me when palatal, they both sound like djinn. Can you hear a difference between palatal d and t?

In my links thread at the beginning of this part opf the forum, I include links for pronunciation. The best one is the akerbeltz site. If you click on that link and then look to the bottom of the page to which it sends you, there's a little section entitled "Fuaimean na Gàidhlig". It looks insubstantial, but has links to a whole host of pronunciation guides, and the best feature is that you can download both the written and sound files.
