Thanks. Frank's stress and "bow"-wow plus your "ran"-far added together
makes a pronunciation. Is your "baura:n" in good clean IPA notation? It
looks like it, but I just want to check. Is the Gaelic "r" really just
like a plain old English and American "r"? If not, how does it compare to a
French or German or Spanish "r"?
(By the way, I am indeed aware that there is a Gaelic-list out there, but I
think this question is vaguely relevant to IRTRAD)
