    Red face Phonology Rules - Flapping

    Here is a link to a post that gives a good description of the American English flapping rule. The description uses a cute cartoon as the basis for demonstrating the rule.

    A Walk in the WoRds: Happy Homophonic Birthday Mom

    If anyone know of other cartoons that provide data for the analysis of phonology rules please let me know.

    Thanks.
