RDQ 23-6-16: Speech sounds

If the "hissing S" sound is sibilance, does anyone know what word is given to describe the near-gunshot/explosion sound some people make when pronouncing the letter "P", particularly over PA Systems, and also is there a name for the "rolling R" that appears to be quite common in Wales ?

Any other names for "odd but quite common" variations of pronouncing some letters/sounds ?

Plosive stop?

Is it perhaps more a case of the mouth being too close to the microphone and the "puh" sound forcing air out of the lips, onto the microphone, which then picks up the initial sound?

Interesting thought though!

I agree that the P sound is a plosive, I think the rolled R sound is an alveolar trill.
