True, I thought this would come up while I wrote, so that's why I added 
the smiley, indicating that I was not so serious about all of it.

Yes, indeed. So probably the computer correctly interpreted the words 
and recognized the accent/dialect of the speaker. And the computer did 
not add the missing -'e' bec ause it was not spoken, of course.

Yes, that happens so often. People often ask me to write Klingon 
phonetically and I wonder what exactly they want. And they're 
disappointed when I give them an IPA sample. :-D
