Not even "milk"?

Just thought - except for the ilk cluster (ilk, silk, milk, etc.) and ulk

(sulk, hulk, etc.) I don't pronounce the l in any of the other Vlk words

either. There's a take-off on folk music that is written on and about

science fiction and sung at science fiction conventions that started as a

typo years ago. It's called filk music (verb to filk) - and the l is

definitely pronounced.
