I'm pronouncing [t] and [d] with lateral release. Sometimes, they come out as lateral affricates; i.e., [tK] and [dK\], respectively, but I try to minimize the affrication. I can't think of any natlangs off-hand that have them, though many Native American languages have lateral affricates. ___________________________________________________________ Gesendet von Yahoo!
