Yeah, the [v] tends to assimilate into an [f] - losing voice because it gets run into the following [t], which is voiceless. I pronounce the above something like [Aj ''h&:f t@ 'gEt mi w@ n@ Douz] I'm using the Usenet ASCII-IPA transliteration; what do folks usually use in this group? A = lowercase script a = open back unrounded vowel = "a" in "father" & = lowercase ae ligature = open/mid-open front unrounded vowel = "a" in "cat" @ = schwa = "a" in "about" = "u" in "putt" E = lowercase epsilon = open-mid front unrounded vowel = "e" in "met" i = i = "i" in "machine" = "ee" in "reed" (or "Reed" :)) o = o = "o" in "nose" minus the u-glide u = u = "oo" in "noose" -Mark
