Just a quick question. Is /tS/ aspirated in English? I ask just because normally, /tj/ > /tS/ in my dialect: tune /tSu\;n/, courtyard /ko:tSa:d/, unless the letter before is an /s/: nextyear /neksdZI:/, lastyear /la:sdZI:/. Is that possibly related to the way unvoiced stops are unaspirated after /s/ (in e.g. spit)? Tristan.
