Sometimes, especially at the end of a word, as in "little" ([lIrl=], r=flap), but in my pronunciation of "cock-a-doodle-doo", there's a definite vowel there, something in between [U] and [@] between the /d/ and the /l/. -- "It has occured to me more than once that holy boredom is good and sufficient reason for the invention of free will." - "Lord Leto II" (Dune Chronicles, by Frank Herbert) ICQ #: 18656696 AOL screen-name: NikTailor
