The rhotacism has traditionally been described as the exchange of a lateral sound by a rhotic
sound, so /l/ is converted into /r/.
(20.) In 4 of the 25 the vowel is i and the liquid is a rhotic
The multiple vibrant, [r], was found to be the least common phonetic realization of the trill, whereas the most common substitution was an assibilated rhotic
[r], characteristic of the Spanish spoken by adults in the geographic area where the study was conducted.
He pronounced the rhotic
variant of the word and omitted the last consonant sound /d/.
The LFC suggests a rhotic
pronunciation of English, as well as avoiding "t-tapping"--characteristic of, for example, some varieties of American English where an intervocalic /t/ is realized as a tap /[??]/.
Finally, Henriksen (2015) is the first study to address rhotic
phonemes in the Spanish of HL users.

Both Scottish English and the various Scots dialects are generally considered to be rhotic
. As we have seen for NEAR and SQUARE above, this does not generally hold for Orkney English.
have been studied in detail, and it has been shown that they involve complex gesture that generally results in late acquisition (e.g., Gomez-Fernandez, 2004; Jimenez, 1987; Vasquez-Carranza, 2006); one such rhotic
sound is the Spanish tap, [r].
Since New Mexican Spanish has been in consistent contact with English since the mid-1800s, one would also expect to find some level of English influence in the articulation of rhotic
