cedille in vecu

For vecu, why isn't there a cedille under the "c"? Recu uses a cedille and I thought that CU combinatioin made it a hard c. I don't expect an answer, but at least I tried.

Because vécu is actually pronounced with a hard c. Reçu on the other hand has a soft c.

Bonjour Joanne, comme Alan a bien expliqué « vécu » est prononcé conne VÉ-KU, avec un « c » dur comme « k ».  Reçu est prononcé avec un « c » doux, donc le « ç » est utilisé. RE-SU, avec les « u » dits à la française.  J’espère que cela t’aidera.  Bonne journée...
