En réponse à Roger Mills :

No parentheses here. "-lle" can *only be pronounced [l] (this is not Spanish :)) ). The "i" needs to be part of the polygraph to trigger the [j] pronunciation. "Belle" can only be [bEl], not *[bEj].
> so apparently I was segmenting wrongly ai-lle [E-j]
The problem is that with this segmentation you wouldn't arrive to an [Ej] pronunciation anyway, but to [El]. That's why I didn't understand where you got that idea. Christophe Grandsire. You need a straight mind to invent a twisted conlang.
