Most dialects do have at least a few. In my dialect there are: Mouth-mouthe Thin-then Thigh-thy Thou (short for "thousand")-thou (archaic pronoun) I think there might be a few more pairs. I once made up a verb /p&D/ to mean "make a path". I'm not sure how you'd spell it, "pathe", maybe? But that would look like /pejD/. -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'.
