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-()

You ask, "What is the most important thing?"
Maku e ki, "He tangata, he tangata, he tangata."
I reply, "It is people, it is people, it is people."
