José Roberto,

You are right. Although the nasalization of preceding vowels by nasal consonants in English is not as strong as in Portuguese, it does occur, and as you correctly observed, tends to reduce the contrast between vowel phonemes.

Thanks for your always valuable contributions to this forum.
