I usually find myself pronouncing |fleishik| / |fleishig| as [flejSIx],
with a /x/. |milxi(k/g)| is still [mIlxIk], though... probably because
the sequence [xIx] would be too weird...
"i'm only happy when i'm fleish;
i'm only happy when there's meat in me..."
~ song by a friend who really really likes meat
to the tune of "i'm only happy when it rains"

As an aside, I just realized something. The yiddish "fleishig" or "meaty"
comes from the german from which stems the english "flesh." I never
before noticed that connection.
