No. There is no /N/. You could have _Benkt_ [bENkt] or _Bengan_ [bENgan] (where
the [N]'s represent /n/).

Yargish could have Vangan [vaNan] instead of Vant, if you prefer. Meghean could
have Beñan [beNan] instead of Bent.

I knew you would! ;)

Well, how do *you* pronounce it?

The first two would respectively:

Tshó [tSo:] (Tairezazh)
Teo [tSo] / Teosh [tSoh], Meghean
Chu [tSM] (Yargish)

while [tjA~] ought:

Tshán [tSA:n]
Teañh [tSaG~]
Chang [tSaN]

and [tsaN]:

Tsan [tsan] (or, if you prefer, Tsang [tsaNg])
Teañ [tSaN]
Chang [tSaN]
