I've heard that the proper way to say the Shema Israel is by pronouncing the final daleth (d) sound for a longer time.

1) Is this a real thing? What are the sources?
2)I find it near impossible to pronounce a long "d".

    Check out these two questions. I think the question in the first link and the answer of the second link answer your two-pronged question. – Rish Nov 17 '15 at 0:47
  • The daleth doesn't have a dagesh, so it's pronounced "th" as in "this". – Loewian Nov 17 '15 at 0:59
