Notice: I have been making a small amateur study of phonetics & have lately
run into the question posed by terms like 'hot dog' & 'motley' the 't's
therein (at least when I pronounce them), seem to act as simple, non-
plosive alveolar stops. Am I right in so labeling them? If so, how is it
written in the IPA?
