WHAT DOES R-COLOURED MEAN IN ENGLISH?

R-colored vowel

In phonetics, an r-colored or rhotic vowel is a vowel that is modified in a way that results in a lowering in frequency of the third formant. R-colored vowels can be articulated in various ways; the tip or blade of the tongue may be turned up during at least part of the articulation of the vowel or the back of the tongue may be bunched. In addition, the vocal tract may often be constricted in the region of the epiglottis. In the IPA, an r-colored vowel is indicated by a hook diacritic placed to the right of the regular symbol for the vowel. For example, the IPA symbol for schwa is ə, while the IPA symbol for an r-colored schwa is ɚ. R-colored vowels are rare, occurring in less than one percent of the languages of the world: however they occur in three of the most widely spoken varieties: North American English, Mandarin Chinese and Quebec French. In North American English, they are found in words such as butter, nurse and, for some speakers, start. They also occur in some variants of Dutch, of Brazilian Portuguese, and of Danish.
