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."
Let us pray that Miller's Paradox (see http://cbbrowne.com/info/godwin.html)
never occurs on this list. Perhaps we should institute a separate mailing
list: "English Pronunciation For Conlangers" in which we may discuss to
excruciatingly fine detail the vagaries of our idiotlects...I mean idiolects.
