    A more interesting question is whether it's voiced or not. Nov 5, 2019 at 20:49
  • I believe only (some) Scots ever have an alveolar tap there today. For everyone else it's just a squishy approximate. There used to be some other dialects 50+ years ago where you had a bit of that, but I don't know that anyone still speaks them.
