Count me for another one - it definitely _is_ [M\], not [w]. If you need labialization, take Serbo-Croatian(-Bosnian). It has had its word-final [5] turned into [o] (or is it [O]?. It's 'o' orthographically, dunno the exact nature of the sound). Pavel -- Pavel Iosad Is mall a mharcaicheas am fear a bheachdaicheas --Scottish proverb
