Then you grew up in fair and square [X] land. I'm from
Orust, which used to have funny, strongly labialized 'sj-
sounds'. I live in Gothenburg since 28 years, though. I
still have [z\] for /j/ and [z\=:] for /i:/ though, and slip
easily into [z=(:)] for /i(:)/ if I speak with someone who
uses it. They are not as dying a species as you'd think! :-)
