Hmmm. I could *never* trill an r. I've tried since very young, and have
never succeeded. Interestingly, I *can* do a bilabial trill (which,
incidentally was learned by imitating my mother... don't ask why she does
that, I'm not gonna answer :-P).
Question: what's the IPA symbol for the bilabial trill?

*sigh* I can't whistle nor trill an /r/ :-(
The bilabial trill is about the only trill I can do.
I haven't lost my mind: it's backed up on tapes -- CompuMan
