I've got some phonetics-related questions:
1. What are "sonorants"?
2. Why is the [r\] at the end of words (American English) often
transcribed as [@`] in dictionaries? Where is the difference? I know the
little hook i sf ro indicating rhoticity -- are there other
vowels/consonants/sounds in general that can be rhoticized?
3. Did clicks arise through affricates? I don't know why affricates,
but something in my mind tells me so.
