The "r" sound can be found in three different locations within a word.
When it is the first letter or sound of a word, we will call that the "initial" position.
When the "r" sound is at the end of a word, that is the "terminal" position.
If the word contains an "r" anywhere between the first and the last sound, we will call that location the "medial" position.
The "r" sound will perhaps require more attention than other sounds that we will be working with in Accentgone. It is quite unique to the English language. Many students will not have this sound in their first language.
