  • The unaccented French e is pronounced similarly to the e in the English word the, but slightly shorter and further back in the throat.
  • The French letters g and j are pronounced with a soft jhay sound similar to the s in Asia. The vowel sounds in the French letters are switched—g being jhay, and j being jhee.
