Same here. In fact, I CANNOT pronounce any kind of approximate /r/, except those that use the back of the tongue, after /T/. It always comes out as a tap, unless I put in a schwa. "Three", for instance, is [Tri] ([r] = alv. tap). The only way I can get [r\`] (retroflex approximate) is if I say [T@r\`i], with a very short [@]. -- "If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore, and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God!" - Ralph Waldo Emerson "Glassín wafilái pigasyúv táv pifyániivav nadusakyáavav sussyáiyatantu wawailáv ku suslawayástantu ku usfunufilpyasváditanva wafpatilikániv wafluwáiv suttakíi wakinakatáli tiDikáufli!" - nLáf mÁldu nÍmasun ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
