WG:  <<is there, in fact, a distinction between [d] and
"flapped" [t]/?>>
WB:  In casual speed American English, the phonemic distinction between /t/
and /d/ is neutralized as [denti-alveolar flap] after stressed vowel,
before unstressed syllable. As in Ladder Day Saints. Sepp Blatter ~ step
ladder.
