French has three front, rounded vowels: /y/ as in "vu", /ø/ as in "deux", and /œ/ as in "soeur". They differ by the relative opening of the oral cavity, with the tongue curved forward, the tip of the tongue behind the bottom teeth, and the lips rounded. "bu, boeufs, boeuf; pu, peux, peur; mue, Meuse, meurt; vu, veux, veulent; fut, feu, feuille; du, deux, deuil; su, ceux, soeur; aigu, gueux, gueule; J'ai vu deux soeurs."
