A lesser known letter in the English alphabet, some refer to it as the 27th letter. It is primarily derived from southern mountainous regions in the U.S. It can replace a standard regular "r" but it is usually added to words that are not typically spelled with an "r", thus causing words containing the Appalachian "R" to have a certain mountainous twang when pronounced.
