I am wondering how to pronounce the swedish word adjö (meaning goodbye). I'd appreciate it very much if anybody could help describe the pronunciation.

Thanks in advance.:D

    "Adjö" is pronounced pretty much like "ah-yeu". (Borrowed from french "adieu" a long time ago, since then the spelling has changed and the "d" is not pronounced.)
    "Adjö" is considered pretty archaic nowadays, but has given birth to the more informal "Ajöss" (Ah-yeuss).
    Hope that helps!
