| I say ftring and other things to my friends and family, just because I like
the way it's sort of an inside joke...but only i get it. I don't use
it outside of those specific circles tho

I was about to say something like that: a "cute" pronunciation.  An "advanced
lisp" of sorts: "sleep" > "thleep" > "fleep".  Or one could go one further and
say "hleep", or go directly from the original word.

Or I could go the opposite direction and say "khleep" /xli:p/...
