Datapoint Michif/uː - long high back rounded vowel

The phoneme /u:/ has an allophone [o:] in the Cree component, but not in the French component. Rosen (2007) transcribes this Cree and French vowel as /o/, and the brief /u/ of French as /u/, and the short /u/ of Cree as /ʊ/. Length differences are secondary for her as she emphasizes the vowel quality differences.
