From what I know, R and L are sometimes interchanged or mispronounced as the other because of the native language, it lacks the proper pronunciation for such letters that they grew up not being able to pronounce the r correctly. though scientific studies suggest that it is sometimes because of how they are not able to position the tongue correctly due to lack of control of their tongue muscle that is still connected to how they don't really pronounce the letter R in the native language so the tongue doesn't curl up the way its suppose to be for the letter "r".

Interesting that the Japanese seem to have it reversed...they have difficulty pronouncing the "L" sound, substituting the "R" instead.

I took a speech class in college and only then did realize I have been pronouncing my "R" with "W". eek.gif The "R" sound is not used in the Chinese language, so a lot of Chinese have difficulty pronouncing it.

BTW, I also finally learn how to pronounce the "TH" sound from that same class. beerchug.gif
