[language] Angina and vagina

In my idiolect, “angina” and “vagina” have always rhymed. However, the cardiology team that’s been working on my mother (who presumably know of what they speak) pronounced “angina” with a short, unstressed /i/ in the middle, so instead of “an-j-eye-nah” they say “an-j-in-uh”.

(In case you were wondering about yesterday’s QOTD.)
