According to wikipedia: bequemen: verb. IPA: [bəˈkveːmən] That is a likely explanation. It’s the same in English though, ...

Re: Regional Dialect and Idiolect Oddities (pronunciation)

Fascinating. I've never seen a rounded x in math ... but then we don't use x for multiplication in German (we use the dot in the middle).

And we were taught that the second x stroke goes up. How are you going to connect it otherwise in cursive writing?
