Steg Belsky scripsit:

I know this isn't German, but Anglophone Yiddish instead, but i generally
find that i pronounce the adjective _fleishig_ "meat" (normally /flejSIk/
or /flejSIg/) as [flejSIx] instead.  That doesn't happen with its
opposite, _milkhig_ [mIlxIk], probably due to the previous existence of a
[x] sound in the word?

Your right [mil&ccedil;i&ccedil;] (why do I think the code won't work?) is
kind of a tongue twister but it's quite common though.
