This episode complements episode 222: “What are these strange ” LE ” and “NE” words with no actual meaning in French ??”. We’ll see examples of letters being added with the only purpose of making French pronunciation easier. There will also be examples of common spelling alterations to achieve that same purpose. So, if you want to get more clarity on why you may find a mysterious “NE”/”LE”/”S”/”T” or accent in a French sentence or word which doesn’t usually has it, this episode is for you!
