Date: Mon, 29 Nov 1993 17:57:27 -0800 From: Donald Livingston Subject: Re: th/dh I'm amazed. In my ignorance I hadn't realized that there was any dialect of English where we actually had minimal pairs distinguished by the voiced/voiceless interdental fricatives. I have a request for any speakers out there who do distinguish pin-pen: please post any minimal pairs you have noted in your variety of English that show that voiced/voiceless interdental fricative distinction. I have failed to come up with any for my own pin/pen distinguishing dialect. All the best, Don. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Don Livingston (Graduate Student) 4500 Whitman Ave. North #2 Dept. Slav.
