Is there a phonetic chart somewhere? I wish to try pronouncing these words. I wonder which vowels are long, which short, which open, which closed... is j more of a German or English undertone.... are both l heard in a word or only one? Is it the dark l or clear one?

There are a few exceptions to where the vowels are longer, but generally all vowels are long and pronounced.

There are a few times in words they are longer, as the word :

lyst - the y is long for describing light, and light colors, but for desire the s is stressed.

The charts that you find are not very good, I have never heard anyone be able to speak or read well form them.

I will try to look for the audio tracks.

Here is a video from one of the many children's TV show, or Barne TV Me Eli fra "Portveien 2"
