I'm fairly certain I've never known _a set_ of fraternal twins. It's of course entirely possible that some people I've known not too well may have had fraternal twins (or even single-egg ones) I've never heard of. Of course this indicates a minimal possibility that I may've known both twins in different circumstances. Interesting pronunciation of my name, anyways. Anglophones typically supply whatever phone they have in "man" for the first syllable; do you have [a] there? I do hope [e@] is not meant to be a diphthong! The One True and Correct pronunciation is of course [an'dr`e:as]~[an'dr\`e:as]. Andreas
