The other day, Jana wanted some Fruit Loops, and called them "Loop-Loops".

Amy wanted to mock her but forgot that her pronunciation isn't perfect, either :) So she ended up telling me, in a "what a dumbass" tone, "Jana calls Loop-Loops 'Loop-Loops'." How ironic :D

Though she more commonly calls them "Lloop-Loops" (with a Welsh "ll" at the beginning). I asked her whether she could say "llan" and she did. So she has a good voiceless lateral fricative at her command :) It also often surfaces for things like /fl/ (e.g. "floor" sounds like "lloor").
