Well, in my booklet of Basque Basque |s| is Spanish |s| and Basque |z| is French |s|. And I don't think the French |s| is dental (I pronounce it clearly alveolar). And I normally don't hear the difference between the French and the Spanish |s|. Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
