I Scream / Ice Cream

Differences between "I scream" and "ice cream" :

The /ai/ sound is slightly longer in "I scream".
The /sk/ is more explosive in "I scream".
There is more emphasis on the second syllable in "I scream".

I think the /k/ moves forward with the /s/ for "I scream", whereas it moves back
with the /r/ in "ice cream".

But the difference is very subtle.

Regionality probably doesn't enter into it for me - my accent/dialect is from
all over the place.
