Essential to any French caricature, nasal vowels are vowels pronounced through both the mouth and nose. Knowing when to nasalise in French is quite easy; actually doing it is harder. Any time m or n come after a vowel but not before one, you have a nasal vowel.
|an||Ah -> anN||tante||am, en, em|
|in||ee -> aN||singe||im, un, um, yn, ym, ain, aim, ein, eim|
|on||oh -> ohN||son||om|
- an - like French a, but nasalised
- in - like French è, but nasalised
- on - like French ô, but nasalised
