general. The source of these Romanian words had syllabic [r.]
_not_ [rU]. See? <trn, trg> etc. The most common substitute
for sylabic liquids in a language that hasn't got them is
[Vr], with a central vowel if possible. The same happened to
syllabic [l.], as in tâlmaci 'translator' < *tlmac^I or stâlp
'post' < *stlpU.
