Yeah, it's probably your being non-teutophone. =P As far as I can tell, |e| and only |e| can schwaify in German, and does so consistently. That's the reason why, unlike native speakers, Germans never spell "definite" as "definate" and "capital" as "capitol", or confound "effect" and "affect". -- Christian Thalmann -- +++ GMX - Mail, Messaging & more +++ NEU: Mit GMX ins Internet.
