Huh? [c] is apical? Or [c_+]? I always interpreted [c] as laminal, and was guessing [c_+] is also laminal. Let me disambiguate by writing [c_a] and [c_m] (one of which will be redundant). I have no difficulty distinguishing [c_+_mC_+_m)] from [tS].. it is quite similar to [t_jj_0)], and [t_jj)] occurs in Dutch. René
