      Thanks Brian,

      I'd sent a reply earlier but it didn't appear until after your explanation. I haven't been around Icelandic speakers for a while, but will be listening for this pronunciation when I am.

      I find these variations in language interesting.

      All the best,
      Michael

      No. Apparently you didn’t read my answer to Sygyrd. She’s
      pronouncing <álfur>, and her pronunciation is within the
      range of normal variation, though it is well towards one end
      of that range.
