His "Outline of Phonetics" has been described (on sci.lang, I think) as "answering every possible question about phonetics, except how to pronounce 'Ladefoged'". Eventually the answer was tracked down: although it's a Danish name, he pronounces it in his "debased RP" (self-description) as ['l&d@fowg@d]. -- Schlingt dreifach einen Kreis vom dies! || John Cowan <jcowan@...> Schliesst euer Aug vor heiliger Schau, || Denn er genoss vom Honig-Tau, || Und trank die Milch vom Paradies. -- Coleridge (tr.
