Abstract:

This paper analyzes some cases of functional substitution of an oral vowel for a nasal one in the spoken varieties of French and Bulgarian, as well as in some varieties of French which are as spoken outside France. Other subjects of research include cases of functional replacement of a nasal vowel for an oral one in the spoken variety of French and its variants. The purpose of the study is not only to describe the observed processes, but also to identify their causes at the subsegmental, segmental and suprasegmental levels.
