I have removed the following from Appendix:Irregular verbs:English.

Shone is pronounced /ʃoʊn/ (enPR: shōn, like tone) in US English, but in British and Australian English it is pronounced /ʃɒn/ (shŏn, like "gone"). In Canadian English either pronounce may be encountered.

AHD supports /ʃoʊn/. Cambridge only recognises /ʃɒn/ (even for the US pronunciation). Do we have anything backing the Canadian pronunciation up? Jimp 03:29, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
