It is an insidious thing. Perceptually, though, I often have to do a double-take on certain person's pronunciation of [tEn] as /taen/, since my phonemic filter captures the [En] as necessarily /aen/. Sometimes after a bout of phonemic transcription, I even start restoring the long-lost /h/ before /w/! --Rudy Troike [rtroike[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]]
