[on Mexican |ll|]

A friend of mine, a Japanese who had spent a year or two on Mexico and picked up a little Spanish, gave me the phrase [dZo mE dZamo <name>], which confused me since I could imagine [dZ] for |ll| but had never heard of any pronunciation for |y| but [j]. Yet she insisted that that was the pronunciation she had learned there. Cheers, -- Philip Newton <philip.newton@...> Please watch Reply-to!
