Or there is a tone difference. For example, in one dialect of Norwegian, a noun pronounced {bønnǝr} means "peasants" or "beans" according to the tone used when saying it.

Okrand even mentions sound length in KGT where he uses the example word 
{qettaH}, ...

So who knows? Maybe {wej} "not yet" really is pronounced {weej}. Or 
maybe not. That's the trouble with having only fictional native 
speakers. However, the phenomenon is quite real, however it may 
manifest. We just can't examine it.
