There's a thing called a velar /l/ (you make it with the back of your tongue, not the tip) that some people use and others don't in words like "walk" and "talk."

Valerie

Very interesting. Of course, coming from so. NY, that sound in 'caught' would be a rather distinct sound "aw"...which we also use in place of the /o/ in "coffee" (think if Mike Meyers in SNL "Coffee Talk"). ;-)

Jamie

You can also ask your friends if they make /s/ with their tongue tips behind their top teeth or their bottom teeth. Just in case conversation lags, you know.

Louise

Actually, you're supposed to say, "daw"!!
