Schommelen

[spelling en uitspraak]
How do you pronounce 'gezellig'? What is the difference between 'eu' and 'ui'? How do you write...? You can use the phonetic keyboard if you are familiar with phonetic symbols.

The stress in the verb schommelen is on the first syllable, making the e (acutally both e's) a mute e. Mute e's are never doubled.
