  1. ^ In some dialects it is pronounced [l] or omitted.
  2. ^ As in most Northern Italian languages, nasals do not assimilate their place of articulation to that of the following consonant, differently from what happens in standard Italian. In Venetian, (in Italian only occurring in /n?/, /nk/) is used in all nasal plus consonant clusters: e.g. canpo ['ka?po], canto? [ka?'to?].
  3. ^ The phoneme /r/ in Venetian is almost always an alveolar flap.
