A student has asked me the pronunciation of the French name
DeBroglie.  The pronunciation is available on bing.com,
but as often as I listen to it, I can't decide whether the
woman is pronouncing the "I" (third letter from end)
or not.

Would any native speakers of French on this list
be able to provide a definitive answer? It would
be much appreciated.
