His "Outline of Phonetics" has been described (on sci.lang,
I think) as "answering every possible question about phonetics,
except how to pronounce 'Ladefoged'".

Eventually the answer was tracked down: although it's a
Danish name, he pronounces it in his "debased RP" (self-description)
as ['l&d@fowg@d].
