Moderator note: multiple threads merged to create this one Hi all, I've noticed that in Edith's songs she tends to flap her R's as opposed to the usual pronunciation of R in french. I've also noticed some other french singers do this also such as Charles Aznavour. So my question is: why? Is it easier to sing this way? Was it simply a style choice? Was it an old fashion way of singing? Help in curing my curiosity appreciated. Merci d'avance. fn.
