Andreas Johansson scripsit:

> |v|=[f] is of course perfectly regular in German, tho' |v|=[v] is a not
> uncommon irregularity.

My mother the native speaker and _Germanist_ told me that "v" was
pronounced /v/ in non-native words such as "November" and "van Beethoven"
(LvB was born in Bonn, but the family was from South Brabant).
