    Yes - I mentioned that in post #6 of this thread. The doc didn't aim to be comprehensive, and there are enormous numbers of gaps - especially among longer words. Another long one - probably not in the list of most useful words for an EFL student (), is 'humdinger' [which, unlike 'harbinger', has a plain /ɪŋǝ/]

    I thought I'd seen it somewhere recently.

    As a matter of fact, when I first made the list it was an answer for a German-speaker who wanted to know if there was a raule.
