    How would you say that? Would you say <A> ''R'' or <An> ''R''?

    Here's a thread on the subject.

    It is the initial sound of the following word, and not its spelling, that determines whether to use "a" or "an."

    Phonetically, the letter "r" is pronounced "are," so it would be "an 'R.'"
