Abstract: In this work the authors extend the results of their paper entitled Families of analytic discs in $ {{\mathbf{C}}^n}$ with boundaries on a prescribed $ CR$ submanifold. It is proven that a nongeneric CR manifold $ M$ whose Lewy form is not identically zero can be extended to a manifold $ \tilde M$ of one higher dimension, which is foliated by analytic discs. Moreover this result is used to prove that a sufficiently smooth CR function $ f$ on $ M$ extends to a function $ \tilde f$ which is CR on $ \tilde M$.
