The proposition has been put forth in a phonetics class here that you could
get the following (as we all know) en Francais:
However, there's also these that were put forth:
Notice that the last [O] is NOT nasalized, even though it comes before a
nasal. To me, it would seem like any vowel coming before any nasal would be
*phonetically* nasalized, no matter the language. So, a couple of questions:
1.) To what words do the phonetic forms above refer?
2.) Are the phonetic transcriptions accurate (i.e., is there actually a
difference in vowel quality, like between "bon" and "bonne")?
That's it. :)
