"I sawr a behd turday."
Hmm, /ʔaɪsɔːɹəbɜːd/. I understand the intrusive-r pronunciation up to the final word. Is the r intrusive, as Sir Michael Redgrave used to admonish his moppets not to pronounce, or does it somehow represent the schwa of the usual pronunciation of today /tə'deɪ/. I understand the intrusive-r to occur at the end of syllables when the next syllable starts with a vowel. YMMV.
OTOH, lovely Amsel (Turdus merula), though.
Ceci n'est pas un seing.
