I said I spoke a rhotic dialect *of English* --- to wit, General
American. But that's neither here nor these, except as an explication
of my linguistic esthetics.
We have it on the authority of the home page that these "-r"s
aren't pronounced in Modern Brithenig. So, the question before
the house is, is it:
CANTARE > [kan 'tar] > [k@n 'ta]
CANTARE > [kan 'tar] > ['kan t@r] > ['kan t@]
I find the second sequence phonetically more plausible.
