But the 'r' can only be found in a restricted set of syllables (at least in Mandarin, I have no idea about the other languages of China), so Chinese people still substitute 'l' for 'r' when speaking English. Perhaps less often than Japanese people do; I wouldn't know.

I've lived in France for about a year, speak, read, and write French fluently, and keep up with French (and Western European in general) current affairs pretty closely. So I'm not an expert, but I hope I'm not presumptuous in claiming to know more about it than you do by reading Slashdot :)

Again, I maintain that Europe is moving in the wrong direction -- and rather quickly, at that -- but that it's still better off than the United States

Use the Force, Luke.
