Yes. Now just look what you've done--we're going to have a long thread on English pronunciation, again, for the millionth time. ;> I propose a corollary to Godwin's law for the Conlang list: "As a Conlang discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving English pronunciation approaches one."
