Droll! ;) No, I probably shouldn't've used that comparison. My |rr| is used for a voiced trill at-the-back-of-the-throat using the-back-of-the-tongue - which is where I've always heard |r| of |rio| in Brazilian Portuguese as being, kind of like the sound of |ch| in |achtung baby!| - though I could be wrong. In fact, I probably am wrong ... ;) But that's not the p|rr|oblem, is it? <8-() Wesley Parish
