Why is the verb "beni" spelled without an accent yet pronounced without a nasal vowel? By normal spelling rules, shouldn't the "en" be a nasal vowel?

The syllables for 'beni' are 'be-ni', therefore making it possible for no accent.

  1. Thank you for the explanation. I'm a beginning learner and didn't understand the difference the syllable break would make.

    Thank you sooooo much for continuing to keep this VALUABLE resource up! I used it actively five years ago to gain proficiency. I can NOT tell you how thrilled I am, to have come back with the mission to master Kreyol, and found that you're still kindly and patiently helping people learn.
