A retroflex trill? Wow. I can enunciate that only with great energy and lots of aspiration, and I'm pretty good with trills. I note that there is no IPA symbol for it (there's a white space on the chart, which means "sound possible but not extant"). -- John Cowan Consider the matter of Analytic Philosophy. Dennett and Bennett are well-known. Dennett rarely or never cites Bennett, so Bennett rarely or never cites Dennett. There is also one Dummett. By their works shall ye know them. However, just as no trinities have fourth persons (Zeppo Marx notwithstanding), Bummett is hardly known by his works. Indeed, Bummett does not exist. It is part of the function of this and other e-mail messages, therefore, to do what they can to create him.
