Thanks for the answers - I have come across the term "vibrant" already a few
times, but I wasn't sure if it included all 3 of trills, taps & flaps.
I have no idea why is there need to differentiate the terms "tap" and
"percussive" ... are you insinuating that the latter term was earlier used
I think I'll also note that it seems to me that some trills are inherently
"flapped" (/B\/) and others "tapped" (/r R\/).
