I had a Japanese girlfriend at one point; she had spent some time in Mexico. She said she had learned [dZo me dZamo], which sounded weird to me... I could kind of accept [dZamo], but pronouncing |yo| as [dZo] seemed bizarre. But she insisted that was what she had learned. Cheers, Philip -- Philip Newton <Philip.Newton@...>
