Yes, though the /l/ differs depending on whether I'm speaking English or German. I don't know the IPA for the different sounds, though. (I suppose one of them might be [5], though.) And my last name is [njuwt@n] in English and [njutn=] in German.

Is there no [nj] possible? I do tend to prefer it over (what I consider) the American pronunciation without the [j]. Cheers, -- Philip Newton <philip.newton@...> Watch the Reply-To!
