CHAT: minimal pair of English Interdentals

Hi All,

I recently reread a post of several weeks ago about whether [T] and [D] are
cophonemic in English.  I found a minimal pair: teeth [tiT] and to teethe
[tiD] (as in what a baby does when s/he grows the first teeth).  Does that
prove anything?  Does anyone here speak a dialect which has both of those
pronbounced the same?
