Oh, that's nice. No nasals!! Hehe. I chose points of articulation inside the mouth, and only alveolar and velar for Tyl-Sjok. But obviously other people make crazy constraints, too... Your girl-friend's name would come out quiet ok, though: /nEkan/. But I'm long thinking about dropping my /a/ again in favor of [3]. I think she wouldn't be pleased with /nEk3n/ either... :-)) **Henrik
