Dans un courrier dat=E9 du 08/09/99 17:44:37 , Gustavo a =E9crit :
> What really are the semivowels? I mean, are [j] and [w],
there is another beautiful one : [=FC]
(can't write the IPA symbol) :
french : "suave, nuit, =E9cuelle".
> respectively, just short [i] and [u], or are they really different
> Can semivowels be nasalized?
the surest way to get S nazalised is to nazalise
the V after :
french w in "loin, jouant" and =FC in "juin"
are sometime pronounced nazalized,
depending on locutor.
but i don't think =FC in "puant" and j in "chien"
and "lion" ever are.
maybe there are phonetic rules for that ?
