Excellent Example of a Word-Final Front K:  In this interview segment, from late in the interview, Lolly really shows us what what a word-final Front K [ k̯ ] sounds like by pronouncing it very very carefully, especially in her second time saying the word here.  It is almost as if there is a little voiceless third syllable at the end of the word which we might transcribe phonetically as [ kʰʸɪ̥ ].
