The nasal consonants m and n change into a consonant we will call nasalization in certain positions in a word.  They usually change at the end of a word, and they always change when followed by a different consonant.  Nasalization is heard in the vowel which precedes the m and n.  That vowel becomes nasalized.  There are 3 rules for written nasal vowels.
