I think I meant "introspection" rather than "intropection," which I
hesitate to define (though I am sure wags are out there who have
already been tempted).


>Say it isn't so! Intropection rules. I think the preceding /n/ (in
>"Clinton") is et up by its nasalization of the preceding vowel and
>the block on the glottal stop replacement of /t/ is removed.
