The Best Way To Pronounce It
- The French 'o' in ‘on’ sounds like the ‘o’ sound in ‘on’. The 'n' is nasalised, represented by '~';
- The French 'j' has a softer sound than in English - 'zh', or if you prefer, the’s’ sound in 'treasure';
- The French 'ou' sounds closest to the English 'oo' in 'mood';
- It is not necessary to sound the 'r' here, although American English speakers will probably do it naturally. It may sound forced with a middle UK, South African or Australian accent.
