It is. I've been thinking, and I've concluded my dialect doesn't do this. Intervocalic /s/ is [s] in my speech (at least it sounds unvoiced to me; it may be voiced, but not so much as English /z/). As for /s/ before consonants, I can't say, because it becomes [h]! --Pablo Flores "Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of happiness." (George Santayana)
