Hmm, actually, they sound very light when I speak, I think. I noticed once that I pronounced `machen' like [mahn=]. This obviously is a rule at least for my dialect for all intervocalic /x/ sounds. But ok, /r/ I pronounce as [R] (uvular voiced fricative). So `Rachen' (throat) becomes [Rahn=] for me. **Henrik
