I have an instinctive dislike of English Rs, but the kind of Rs that are pronounced by the tongue going to the back of the throat (heavy Rs?) make me wince and backbutton.
Ahahahaa, yeah. people need to get that "A" is not the same as "Say Ahhh!" @u@;;
You don't need to open your even mouth half as much when you pronounce it. (Not AWNAWTAW; anata)
And that's actually how you pronounce the japanese R, actually. .A.;;
You're probably listening to people trying too hard. C':
I'm familiar with the sounds, and the best way to get the Japanese R is to make an L sound without touching the roof of the mouth (which is where the similarities come from).
The tongue at the back of the throat just sounds like someone parodying Japanese people, I swear. Like "RONERY".
There's three Rs that I know;
L without touching the roof of the mouth (Japanese)
Reaching the back of the throat with the tongue (Hard R)
Expanding the tongue and touching the back end of the roof of the mouth (English R)
My teachers say I should become a linguist because I make notes on the most random crap.
