Subject: Re: Loss of /th/ vs assimilation of /ng/ in lengths
Neither 'length' nor 'strength' is an item in the LAMSAS worksheets. I
found them in LAGS' General Index, but not the Technical Index (which would
list its variants).
I've heard the /n[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]/ pronunciation, though I'd say mostly from /E/
speakers as opposed to those with the /E/-/I/ merger before nasals.
