- That's why the Rokbeigalmki phoneme written {F} is a /P/ bilabial fricative instead of a /f/ labiodental one; i kept on pronouncing it that way, so i decided to enshrine it as the 'correct' sound in the phonology of the language. Now if only i could stop doing it in Spanish and Arabic... i don't think they're going to change those languages to suit my pronounciation :-P -Stephen (Steg) "You will begin to touch heaven, Jonathan, in the moment that you touch perfect speed. And that isn't flying a thousand miles an hour, or a million, or flying at the speed of light. Because any number is a limit, and perfection doesn't have limits. Perfect speed, my son, is being there." ~ _jonathan livingston seagull_ by richard bach
