I don't know of a single English word with /stS/, "sch" is usually /sk/ as in "school" or /S/ as in some pronunciations of "schedule" (tho not mine), but mostly in German names like Schneider. /stS/ is simply an impossible cluster in the English language. -- "If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore, and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God!" - Ralph Waldo Emerson ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
