French pronunciation

The French letter combination io is pronounced like the word "yo." The i is a semi-vowel that blends with the o into a single syllable, rather than being pronounced separately as in Rio de Janeiro.

Par exemple…
attention attention, warning
biologique biological, organic
une question question, issue
nous copions we copy
