Mutable R's

Asha'ille's R-sound is suffering from a severe identity crisis.

When I started out, /r/ was my American rhotic [r\] with occasional Spanish
trilling [r] influence around consonant clusters.  Then I took German 101
and I began noticing my Asha'illen R's going toward the uvular [R\] (or is
it just [R]? I'm unsure).  Once I realized what was going on, the R's
decided to try disappearing altogether British R-drop style.


Maybe some R-statistics would be of help in convincing the Asha'illen R to
settle down.  Or other people's experiences.  Or something.  Anything!  :(

Arthaey, whose personal R is definitely American
