Datapoint San Andres Creole English/ɾ - voiced dental/alveolar flap

The alveolar trill may also be realized as a tap or occasionally as an approximant (cf. Bartens 2003: 19). Sometimes, retroflex pronunciations occur, probably due to the influence of American English. This occurs much more frequently in Nicaraguan Creole than in San Andres. This pronunciation may carry over into L2-Spanish.
