Yes, I was mistaken.  I pronounce "iced" as /aist/ not /aisd/ and I suppose
most people do so.  Second mistake on my part:  English speakers can indeed
voice halfway through a stop.  Go into your local Plaid (Duncan) Donut shoppe
and ask for a "vanilla-iced donut" and you will probably say /aistdo/.

I hope you don't mind my amateur phonetic transcriptions.  An an amateur, I
know OF the IPA alphabet but I am also aware that when it comes to IPA, a
little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
