Do you have an example where those phonemes contrast? That is, examples which show they are not allophones of a single phoneme? I've been wondering because I like distinguishing between [V] and [@] but people had so far convinced me that the difference is not phonemic (being conditioned by stress). Hearing that they *are* phonemic in some dialect sounds interesting. Cheers, Philip -- Philip Newton <Philip.Newton@...>
