When I imitate D.D., I primarily do so with ultra-creaky voice and strong
nasalization, not egressive clicks.

There are two forms of raspberry: I asuppose you are referring to the
bilabial variety, which is clearly a velar egressive. In my
household, however, the sublingual/interlabial variety is
standard, and I *think* (it's hard to be sure) that this involves
glottalic rather than velar closure. (My family is giving me
weird looks as I Bronx-cheer the computer screen.)
