You actually have [r\`] or even [r`]?!?! I have [r\] in most places, and sometimes [4] or [r]. I always have the tap [4] after stops, (well almost in any case). "Andreas" would be [and4e:as] to me (with a grave pitch accent). I *never* have [r`] and I only have [r\`] when I speak English (or rather AmEng). [r`], isn't that the "l" of Dalarna? The retroflex flap? Daniel Andreasson
