3 LES VOYELLES In French the vowels are the core of each word. How the vowels are grouped in the word drastically affects how the word sounds. The other way to change the sound of the word is with the inclusion of accents. A E I O U

ALL the other vowels do not change their sound. They have an accent to help simply with the reading of written French.

10 26 SOUNDS An accent changes the sound of the vowel, but not the emphasis of the vowel. In French more sounds are created when vowels are linked together. This and the use of accents creates more than 26 sounds in the French alphabet.

11 EXEMPLES: A+ I = É A + U = O O + I = UA O + U = U E + I = É E + U = U E + U = E A+ I = É A + U = O O + I = UA O + U = U E + I = É E + U = U E + U = E JAI EAU MOI VOUS VEINE EU VEUX

12 There are also some other sounds that you will come accross as demonstrated below. c + h = ch ch shhh! p + h = ph physique physique ç = s Français French c + h = ch ch shhh! p + h = ph physique physique ç = s Français French

13 A Basic rule of pronounciation in French is that if the last letter of the word is an 'E' without an accent then you don't pronounce it, you simply pronounce the consonant just before. tête head petite small Reste STAY tête head petite small Reste STAY

14 LES CONSONNES In general at the end of words in French the last letter is silent. There are three exceptions to this rule. These three letters are 'C','F' and 'L'.

18 LA LIAISON if one word finishes with an 'X', 'S' or 'Z' and the next word starts with a vowel or an 'H', you must link the words: Deux amis two friends Vous avez we have This is called 'la liaison'...and this is what makes you think you've only heard one word when in actual fact there was six or seven. if one word finishes with an 'X', 'S' or 'Z' and the next word starts with a vowel or an 'H', you must link the words: Deux amis two friends Vous avez we have This is called 'la liaison'...and this is what makes you think you've only heard one word when in actual fact there was six or seven.
