Alveolar flap

From Teflpedia


butter [ˈbʌɾɚ]

The IPA phonetic symbol [ɾ][1] represents an alveolar tap or flap, like the American pronunciation of butter [ˈbʌɾɚ] or ladder [ˈlæɾɚ].

This sound is also present in Spanish pero [ˈpeɾo], and is different from the one in perro [ˈpero]. See IPA phonetic symbol [r]
