speak for yourself ! /ridn=/ is completely unnatural to me. i'm somewhere between /ridN=/ and /ridIN/ depending on register. |singing| comes out /sINN=/, /sININ/ or, bizarrely but quite frequently, /sIj~IN/ and |going| is /g@UN/ ( or /g@U_IN/ if that's legal XSAMPA ). strangely, actually, i seem to realise |go| as [g@U] but |going| as [gVU_IN]. i wonder why . . . bn __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
