THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ANSWERED MY REQUEST.

STOP NASALIZATION IS FOUND IN THE SOUTHERMOST DIALECT OF FAROESE (THE LANGUAGE OF THE FAROE ISLANDS), THE DIALECT OF THE ISLAND OF SUDUROY. WHEREAS ELSWHERE IN THE FAROESE AREA YOU WILL FIND, FOR EXAMPLE, REGNA /REGNA/ 'TO RAIN', VOGNUR /VOGNUR/ 'WAGON', IN THE DIALEECT OF SUDUROY THIS OCCURS AS /RENNA/, /VONNUR/. ''N'' SYMBOLIZES THE NASAL STOP.
