- My conlang, Gabwe, (Goblin), has three R sounds: /4/ ~ alveolar tap /R/ ~ velar approximant [r] (/44/) ~ alveolar trill When /R/ geminates into /RR/ it becomes [G], a velar voiced fricative. -Stephen (Steg) "...tidal waves couldn't save the world from californication..." ~ red hot chili peppers, "californication"
