@alva I will never not use alveolar Rs, they're simply the best Rs (u.u)
I think I fucked my self over by learning the Japanese (short Spanish) r first.... Also by the fact that none of my Spanish or Russian teachers ever bothered to tell me I was doing it wrong.... Until my Swedish (now ex) boyfriend told me....
I'm always rolling it in the back of my mouth... LOL.... Apparently some Dutch ppl do it like that but other than that.... I'm not sure that counts for anything... rip
@funnypanja @alva if you can do the Japanese tongue-tip /ɾ/ you're halfway there already. the next step is to experiment with air pressure (it takes considerable air) and tongue tension to get the multiple taps bouncing. it could help to listen to stereotypical yakuza from movies, they do it exaggeratedly and clear. recording your voice and listening is a good way to ensure that your brain is not tricking you with phonemes.
