Moi and moins

Jordana16

Is "moi" (me) pronounced the same as "moins" (less) or is there a subtle difference in the way these two words are pronounced?

Thanks!

Bonjour Jordana,

There is a subtle difference between 'moi' and 'moins'. 'Moins' has a nasal ending to it. It can be very obvious or very subtle depending on the speaker and other words in the sentence.

I hope this helps.
