Anybody have voiced "th" in {anything},{everything},etc? I seem to have it at least in "anything" but can't be sure about saying the other unconsciously ..

also, i meant to post in the "thanks" subthread earlier but lost track of it. I dont have the voiced "th" there afaik, but Ive heard it. I think it may only occur for the interjection, not when used as a content word. perhaps subconsciously people think of it as a grammar word? but that wouldnt explain why some people do use the voiced "th" in all situations. this may or may not b related to the "anything" voicing.

't Hooft and Ulam aren't people I hear about in ordinary conversation, and there are no standard protocols for dealing with Dutch or Polish names. [Dutch, in particular, gives people nightmares, as witness the trouble with Dutch footballers. After what felt like a decade, people still hadn't settled on a standard way to say 'Kuyt'...]

Funnily, the <'t> everybody seems to pronounce like [tʰə] is actually pronounced [ət] :). It's an abbreviation of <het> [ɦɛt]. And the double <oo> is best approximated by the GOAT vowel. I won't bother you with the Dutch pronunication of "Gerard" though :).

Something like that, anyhow. I think /iən/ can be realized as [in̩], but I'm not completely sure. I didn't write vowel length or nasality in the phonetic transcriptions because I haven't really studied these aspects of my pronunciation very much (either through introspection or other types of analysis), and I assume I just have the expected patterns for those things.

I noticed something strange about my pronunciation of "peculiar": for the stressed vowel, I can use something that sounds to me like /ʊ/ ("/pəˈkjʊljər/") even though that's not a possibility for me in the names "Julia" or "Julian". Does this seem familiar to anyone else?

If I remember correctly, David J. Peterson does. (I forget where he wrote about it, though.) A pronunciation with /i/ would be expected from any speaker who has the sound change ɪ → i / _ŋ, which seems to occur for certain speakers in the West and Midwest of the United States.

I used to. In fact, I used to say something like [ʔiːŋgɭɪʃ] and I guess didn't stop until I got sick of my brother making fun of me for it all the time.

This reminds me of my mom's friend Sarita saying [stʰajl] around 2:15 of this video. In that case, though, I believe it is one of several hyperforeignizations used by all the people speaking in the video (all of whom are friends of my mom's, which pretty much by definition means they're Malayalees here in Austin).

Yes, I admit I have it myself sometimes, as aspiration is foreign to standard Dutch.

Then there is [wɘˈskãntsɘ̃(ː)(n)] versus [ˌwɘsˈkʰãntsɘ̃(ː)(n)] where idiolectal differences in stressing the first syllable of Wisconsin changes its syllabification and thus whether aspiration occurs or not.
