Hmm, that's sad.  Please stay.

Well, the postings still answer linguistical questions about the
pronunciation of certain words, so it is not really totally off-topic.
I was very thankful for the information from Steg that |amen| was
probably [a'men], because this would mean that the rendering in
Qthen|gai would be more like /haNin@/ (with /i/ instead of /@/).
Not that that is a close rendering...
