I appreciate the good work the committee has done in preparing the
pronunciation Lexicon Specification.

As an aid to aging ears that have lost high-frequency hearing, I have
found that vowel epenthesis can make pronunciation more understandable.

I give background for this, when first I became aware of it in mis-hearing
"breadth and depth" as "bread and dead!" I wondered what might be done
to exploit the listener's audiogram
