Dieses Buch bietet einen Einblick in die Varianten und Veränderungen des R-Lautes in unterschiedlichen Sprachen und aus einer Vielfalt von Perspektiven heraus. Es bringt Licht in die Phonetik, Phonologie, Sozio-Linguistik und Spracherwerb des /r/-Lautes in verschiedenen Sprachen wie Holländisch, Englisch, Französisch, Deutsch, Griechisch, Hebräisch, Italienisch, Kuikuro, Malayalam, Rumänisch, Slowakisch, Tirolerisch und Washili Shingazidja, um dadurch zur Diskussion über Einheit und Einzigartigkeit dieser Gruppe von Lauten beizutragen.

Experimental phoneticians, phonologists, sociolinguists and historical dialectologists can all learn from the papers in the monograph, which, while highly technical, present their conclusions clearly and succinctly. These studies provide exemplars of how research on rhotic variation can be carried out. Most of the papers are very informative and will be useful for future researchers by providing a template for how to carry out a given research path, as well as by analysis of specific results.
