I'd say ['Sswi Se ad'li paRsk@ kEl'kE~ ma defO~'se la 'g9l]. But I sometimes
pronounce 'quelqu'un' as [kEl'k9~] (I tend to keep the distinction between 'un'
and 'in', though even in my idiolect it's fading :) ).
And I don't know whether my pronunciation is Normand or standard, but I'd think
the latter (for the simple reason that no French until now as been able to
guess where I'm from simply by hearing me :) . They just guess that I'm "not
from the South" :)) ).
