I brought this one up a couple of weeks ago and it
somehow got missed. In my idiolect (thanks to whoever
used that word in a post yesterday!) I say the words
Paul, pole, and pull (esp the latter two) with what
seem to be only two phones. My tongue indeed seems to
be in a retroflex position; it's like I've assimilated
the [l] into the vowel. Would I be right in calling
this a retroflex vowel? How would I represent it in
Sorry for these seemingly frivolous posts. It's
partly because I've been up bored surfing all night
and partly because this list is as much a crash course
in linguistics as anything.
