Ü

Hola, ¿Podrías explicarme las reglas de la ü y la pronunciación de ella?

He lo visto en palabras así

Sinvergüenza
Sentir vergüenza
Lingüística

Pienso que la ü es pronunciada como una silaba apartada, no

No es "seen-ver-gen-thah (no España sah)" , sino "Seen-ver-goo-en-thah"

..Lo encuentro
Quote:
Note that in the letter sequences gue and gui the u is silent and serves to 'insulate' the g from the vowel in order to retain the former's hard pronunciation. With the dieresis, however, the u is also pronounced.
¿es verdad?

The letter ü is pronounced exactly like the letter u.
The letter u, when followed by e or i, is silent, but if you actually want to hear the sound made by the letter u, you write the letter ü.

The quote you posted is true.
