Hmm, that's sad. Please stay.

Well, the postings still answer linguistical questions about the pronunciation of certain words, so it is not really totally off-topic. I was very thankful for the information from Steg that |amen| was probably [a'men], because this would mean that the rendering in Qthen|gai would be more like /haNin@/ (with /i/ instead of /@/). Not that that is a close rendering... **Henrik
