      It is, Regina. In standard Slovak it's [d~edo] -- with a "soft" [d~] (as
      the Slovaks call the sounds d~, t~, n~, l~).

      The [d~] is mostly replaced by [dz] in East Slovak (e.g.: [d~en~], "day"
      --> [dzen~]; [id~es~], "you go/are going" --> [idzes~]).

      Out of This Furnace is a poor source of Slovak, or Rusyn words. Thomas
      Bell got most of them wrong, whether you think of their east Slovak
      versions, or of standard/central Slovak.
