The letter combinations ueil (at the end of a word) and ueill (almost anywhere*) have no English equivalent: they are pronounced like the oo in "foot" plus a "y" sound. The IPA spelling is [œj], and the Lawless phonetic spelling is [ooy].
|un accueil||reception, welcome|
The sound [œj] is spelled ueil only after the letters c and g. To understand why, see the "hard and soft vowels" section of the vowels lesson.
