LÜK = look

Quick post, might be expanded later: Amy just said that her MiniLÜK thing is called LÜK because you have to "look" at it. So presumably she's equating German [Y] with her English /U/... which matches the fact that her English /u/ appears to be fronted a bit, so it would make sense that /U/ is, too.

Still, interesting!
