>French: /i y E E~ e 9 9~ a A~ @ o o~ O u/
It's not */A~/, it's /a~/ (front unrounded, not back unrounded). And it's /O~/, not */o~/ (just like we have /E~/ and not */e~/ :) ). And besides /9/ and /@/ /2/ is also phonemic. You forgot it. Christophe Grandsire. You need a straight mind to invent a twisted conlang.
