The reason I put in "arguably" is that I would never actually use that word
unless precisely to use one with a bizarrely long consonant cluster, in which
case I'd take care to pronounce all the consonants separately ('xcept
the "r", but that's another matter since Swedish does r+dental>retroflex).
_Västkustskt_ is ['vEstk8skt] for me in casual speech, but then I only lived
there for five years.
