Subject: Re: can/can't
I pronounce "can"
as /kaen/ - (the vowel is an "ash") and "can't" as /ke:nt/.
For whatever it's worth (not much, I imagine, but I thought I'd pass it
along anyway), yesterday my five-year-old daughter, who's gotten pretty
good at correlating sounds to letters, wrote the word "can," sounding
it out for herself, as "kean."
We live near Salt Lake City.
