I can only help with a few of these questions: - In the Low German that my grandparents spoke, if was /sk/ in /duItsk/ 'German' and /S/ is /SruIb@n/ [SR\uIbm=] 'to write'. I don't know the language good enough to come up with more words. - In Modern Dutch, it is /s/ in |duits| /d8Yts/ 'German' and /sx/ in |schip| /sxIp/ 'ship' **Henrik
