Rhotics in Phonological Theory

Rhotics display an unusually wide array of phonetic variation, both across and within languages, and no consensus has been reached as to a single phonetic property which would define the class. This special collection explores, from a variety of theoretical viewpoints and languages, including typology, some of the characteristics of rhotics and whether the class of rhotics can be uniquely defined by its phonological properties, and the consequences such a definition has for the phonetics-phonology interface.
