I have Swedish /r/ as [r\] ~ [4] ~ [r] too (roughly in that order of frequency), but don't ask me for my distribution any more these days. It seems [r\] has crept in from somewhere and is gaining ground from the other two. OTOH I *never* have [z`] for /r/ as many people from the general direction of Stockholm have. Where are you from originally, Daniel? For some reason I have [r`] for /l/ after labials and only there. This sure isn't a common trait where I come from. / B.Philip Jonsson B^) -- (delete X!) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ No man forgets his original trade: the rights of nations and of kings sink into questions of grammar, if grammarians discuss them. -Dr. Samuel Johnson (1707 - 1784)
