dear all , 
I am awfully sorry because I  wrote the contrary of what I  meant:   the speaker states :
dak l'astuce instead of dik l'astuce because astuce is a feminine word but for the speaker it sounds more masculine and here we cannot speak of translation, so what do you think so ? 
can we really speak about  phonological sonority , ie , using the speaker's feeling of what  words sounds like ? 
all the best
