  2. Nice to hear from you, John. I shall order a copy.

    I'm looking forward to reading about charted/chartered. I'm not sure whether they are homophones for me. "Charted" would definitely be /tʃa:təd/. In "Chartered", the second vowel might be slightly longer (especially if I'm stressing the word) and I'm not sure whether it belongs with my /ə/ or my NURSE vowel. The dilemma is whether to give [əˑ] to /ə/ or to /ə:/?

  5. Dear Professor Wells,

    I am a Phonetics teacher from Buenos Aires, Argentina. At present I am teaching segmental and suprasegmental Phonology at IES en Lenguas Vivas Juan R. Fernandez. Recently, I came into a copy of your latest book 'Sounds Interesting' and was delighted with all the points you made there. In fact, reading about the tutonic rule reminded me one of my professors, Nilda Zenobi, from whom I had learnt about the rule for the first time in my life, and being colleagues,now, I often consult on stress and other phonetic features . Therefore, I decided to show her your latest book. She was pleasantly suprised to see you work with the tutonic rule since Nilda has worked and works a lot on this field. Incidentally, on one occasion, we discussed the word 'integrative'. among others, and inferred that most three syllable words keep the stress on the first syllable as their derivative root word. But this inference does not always work like this. I would be grateful if you could tell me your opinion about it.

    Hope you are enjoying your retirement,

    Best Wishes

    Stella Palavecino, M.A.

  7. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid, Dercum,fibromyalgia,Get Your Ex Back,Als,SYPHILLIS,Genetic disease, Parkinson's disease.You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....
