I'm a non-native speaker and confused by the pronunciation of "er" in American English,especially the "er"s preceded by "t","l","d",such as "dollar""reporter""matter".Could you tell me in detail how to pronounce them correctly ,like how to move the tongue,etc.
Thank you so much!

Pronunciation is hard to explain, you have to listen to it in order to comprehend what it's about... :roll:
