So you would like to see how neurons used to "American English" would
process sounds that are speech but should not occur in English? Is this
your point?
Just an example, what about the syllabic "r" that occurs in western slavic
languages? This allows you to form nice words like "vrt", "krv", "prst".
Is this something like what you are looking for?
