I'm confused by ɛ̃, as in pain, vin, cinq, etc.
Often, and that's what I'm taught, you are told to pronounce it as the a in "and".
- cinq (first pronunciation)
However, sometimes it is pronounced very differently in my ears. Vin is such a word.
- vin (first)
To me, the ɛ̃ is pronounced differently in these two cases. Could someone please enlighten me on how things are?
