Subject: Re: whoop(s) and woops
as Beverly Flanigan keenly observed:
(Incidentally, perhaps Sylvia Swift has her IPA vowels reversed? Thus,
/U/ should be /u/ and vice versa; and what Daddy does is /wUHp/='whip'
alternate [how do we make an upside-down V=stressed schwa here??].
Similarly, /wh/ should be /hw/, Old English-style.
guilty on both counts. left my ipa spelling in my other pants. i'm hella
chagrined (and it seemed like such a safe thread!). all four have the
vowel of "too" for me. i have seen the e-convention (perhaps on
LINGUIST?) of writing schwa as [AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] (at/each); were daddy to whup me, i'd
need that schwa to describe it.
