On a related subject, since I didn't get any response last time I
mentioned it, do any other listees (from NYC or elsewhere) share my
native ['ay at rniy] pronunciation for "irony"...
i do (or did; in professorial mode i now have onset r rather than
nuclear r). "irony" was homophonous with "iron-y", as in
"this water has a iron-y taste".
