Twenty-ish, black, female speaker:

"I was hired to film a sort of documentary "DOCK youmin TEH ry" _['dOk
jumin "tEri]_ of the event."

I've always felt that this word should be pronounced "DOCK yumin
terry." At last, I now have support. :-)

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
