No. There is no /N/. You could have _Benkt_ [bENkt] or _Bengan_ [bENgan] (where the [N]'s represent /n/). Yargish could have Vangan [vaNan] instead of Vant, if you prefer. Meghean could have Beñan [beNan] instead of Bent.

Well, how do *you* pronounce it? The first two would respectively: Tshó [tSo:] (Tairezazh) Teo [tSo] / Teosh [tSoh], Meghean Chu [tSM] (Yargish) while [tjA~] ought: Tshán [tSA:n] Teañh [tSaG~] Chang [tSaN] and [tsaN]: Tsan [tsan] (or, if you prefer, Tsang [tsaNg]) Teañ [tSaN] Chang [tSaN] Dréas/Andrehas/Angrias
