* The weak English "r" sound is actually quite rare among languages. The "r" is trilled in Russian, Arabic, Dutch, Polish, Greek, Swedish and Norwegian. Spanish and Italian have both a tapped "r" and a trilled "rr". The trilled "r" appears in dialects of other languages, such as Scottish English. French and German speakers don't normally trill the "r", but instead pronounce it at the back of the throat.
