"I pronounce "one ear" and "two ears" as [wVnijr\] and [t_huM\ijr\z],
without any glottal stop. the glottal stop is only compulsory if a vowel
occurs at the beginning of an utterance or after a pause, but YDMV..."

Thanks a lot for the data.
What puzzles me is that you seem to pronounce <one ear> almost like <one
year>. Do you?
Frankly I don't understand what you mean by [t_huM\ijr\z]. What does the
capital M stand for?
