I see it as an American dialect, something like: /fr\str\pr\Znstr\dZnzbr\n?nr\dzmr\mr\?r\tr\4lz/ although what a "murmurer turtle" actually is, is left as an exercise for the reader... This whole mess is starting to make me wonder whether I ought to include some syllabic consonants in Br'ga, and has in fact made me want to do a post on the state of Br'ga phonology. I may just do that, after considering the syllabic consonant question... Paul
