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. Rima
