Datapoint Pichi/ʁ - voiced uvular fricative

There is quite some free variation in the realization of this phoneme (as in the Krio language). Instead of this uvular fricative, speakers may employ the alveolar tap [r] or the corresponding velar fricative. It may therefore be a matter of debate which of these segments is actually the central form.
