franÃ§ais -- "frah[n]-SEH" The r is of course the usual French r . It is comparable to a light clearing of the throat or a milder k -sound, similar to the ch in Ger…man. Because it follows an unvoiced consonant ( f ) in this word, it is unvoiced (compare to the word vrai , where the r is voiced because of the v ). The n in brackets is not pronounced; rather, it is my symbol for a nasal vowel. The an in franÃ§ais is the same as the vowels in the words an , en , grand , sans , temps , ange .

Which would be illegal were it an industry (which it isnt in France). Basically France won that "war" and it became PART of the French Exception. (doing it a different way than anybody else in Europe) When France is doing something like nobody else. The rather high birth rate is the french exception in Europe. (edit: This is BS!) But exception can be used with every country . (edit: no...what? Idiot) (MORE)
