Frage:
Einen pronounced as ein  
von dalibo (BA), 2017-08-09, 01:17  like dislike  Spam?  
Listening to native German speakers i kinda noticed following... I'm not sure, i don't want to jump to conclusion but i would swear that when there is an accusative "einen" they mumble it like "ein"... it doesn't necessarily sound like pure "ein" but there is almost zero effort put in to distinguish the "einen" from sloppy "ein"...i know that Germans understand perfectly well from context and whatnot, but am i imagining things or does fluent, street language doesn't really clearly pronounce "einen"?

You are right. In spoken language, these endings seem to disappear. There are regional differences in terms of what gets mumbled into oblivion also. Y'all know what I'm sayin?

As a German native speaker, i almost feel a bit caught by this comment - yes this is a very good observation. But pay close attention to the first part of your observation - "it doesn´t sound like a pure "ein" - exactly ;) you need only a tiny difference as a native speaker and your brain tells you it sounds like correct German. This is probably a strong somewhat subconscious hint if someone is a native speaker or not - a non native speaker puts way to much effort in pronouncing "einEN".

Thanks for help guys. I exactly understand what you are saying MartinKr because i was getting kinda deep with analysis of couple of examples (headphones) of fast/massacred "einen" - and it's almost humanly impossible to say it exactly like "ein" but to sound completely different from the real "ein"...but i am now a living witness - Germans do it. :)
...i'm starting to dig German.

British people don't talk like newscasters either:
