Dulce de leche ? As Sal points out, a surprising number of people mistake this for Italian and pronounce it with /ʧ/ Hmm? It'd be /le.ke/ in Italian because <ch> is always /k/, while the <c> in words such as ciao is always /ʧ/. Another example is Chievo /ki.e.vo/. He's talking about the <c> in dulc...

Re: Offglides

I don't think so, assuming you're concerned about the phonological details. The act of denying there's any actual difference between [kˡ] and [kl] relies on the characteristics of lateralisation, while [nʲ] and [ɲ] do differ in the place of articulation. Moreover, I've recently met a group of peer U...

Re: How does dominant-recessive vowel harmony arise?

In my own colloquial idiolect of Polish, with its features being shared with me by very few people, I have a front-back (or, to be more specific, palatal-nonpalatal) regressive vowel harmony, often triggered by suffixes, e.g. ładny ['(w)ɑd̪n̪ə] "nice" :> ładnie ['(w)ad̪ɲ̟ɪ] "nicely" or rzut [z̠utʰ] ...

Re: Are the h and ng sounds allophones?

I think the other pairs make sense as the stop consonants have different realisations in the onset and the coda, but this example and thinking singer and ahead differ in the place of the syllable boundary for me have no basis in the phonetic details.
