    Smile Do these sentences have linking r or intrusive r?

    Hi! I'd just like to know about linking r and intrusive r.

    here are some examples:

    A. The Polish labour union only works for the labourers.
    B. The Farmer is working hard for us.
    C. I saw it at a media event yesterday.
    D. Romeo and Juliet fell in love.
    E. New and Old.
    F. Liverpool Bay is a bay of the Irish Sea between northeast Wales, Cheshire, Lancashire and Merseyside to the east of the Irish Sea.
    G. The Queen of Australia is in Brisbane.
    H. There is something in your eyes.
    I. My neighbour hides Alex's car in her house.

    Can you give me the explanations or more examples of these?

    I have found that several sentences sound a little bit like the rhotic r's in them. It can be heard in the middle position.

    Welp, I must recuse myself at this point because I haven't the slightest idea what "rhotic" means.
