    I've just found out about a rhotic accent (I've always used British books). As I understood correct a rhotic speaker pronounces the "r" after vowels in all words. Does it extend to verbs in past tense e.g.:


    Sometimes I have difficulty not to pronounce the letter "r" (world, curl and many others) so this would be useful for me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Rhotic

    Rhotic speakers pronounce written 'r' in all positions, while non-rhotic speakers pronounce 'r' only if it is followed by a vowel sound in the same syllable.
