Rhotic representation: problems and proposals

  • M. Stanley Whitley (a1)

The results have been ad hoc solutions and potential confusion for languages such as Spanish, in which these need to be distinguished. A few modifications of the IPA diacritic system would suffice in order to capture the different types.
