  1. ^ The syllable that carries the primary stress in the last word is phonemically disyllabic /-ˈˈbœl.ən-/. In normal speech, /ən/ assimilates to non-syllabic (because of the preceding /l/) [n] and attaches to the previous syllable, so that it is pronounced monosyllabically [-ˈbœln-]. The pronunciation [-ˈbœln̩-], with a syllabic [n̩] is not possible.
