Fr.: cavité nasale
The interior of the → nose. It is the structure which extends from the external opening, the → nostrils, to the → pharynx, where it joins the respiratory system.
Fr.: consonne nasale
A consonant produced with air escaping through the → nose. For this to happen the → soft palate is lowered and at the same time the mouth passage blocked at some point, so that all the air is pushed out of the nose. Examples of this sound include the English sounds [m], [n], and [ng].
