Query Subject:   trills and accents

Submitter Email:  click here to access email

Query:   I'm forwarding two questions from a phonetics student who is no
subscribed to LINGUIST:

(1) Are there languages in which the alveolar trill and uvular trill
co-occur as separate phonemes?

(2) Are people who learn a foreign language after puberty necessarily doomed
to having a foreign accent due to influence from their mother tongue?

Please reply to: Mia Shen at I'll ask her to
summarize to the list if there are enough replies.

Thank you!
