  • Sometimes switched with the letter r between vowels, ⟨w⟩, or ⟨y⟩ in a word due to lenition of /d/ to /ɾ/ such as dadaan can become daraan. Compare flapping in pronunciation of English medal. The letter does not change if the next consonant is an /ɾ/ (such as madurog does not become marurog) or /l/ (such as madilim does not become marilim).
  • Some words starting with the letter can also become r if the last letter of the preceding word is a vowel, ⟨w⟩, or ⟨y⟩. Examples are daw/raw, dito/rito, dami/rami, and damot/ramot.
  • On all cases stated above, it is acceptable whether ⟨d⟩ or ⟨r⟩ is used. However, the said phenomena do not occur on proper nouns nor recent loan words.
  • In the Teresa-Morong dialect, the letter r may interchange with the letter on any position in the word even when not followed by a vowel, ⟨w⟩, or ⟨y⟩. (ex. ragat/dagat and bayar/bayad). Exceptions are recent loanwords, or if the next consonant after a /d/ is /ɾ/ (such as in durog) or /l/ (such as in dila).
  • Often switched with the letter ⟨r⟩ on non-initial positions in early texts which may indicate ancient pronunciation of words.
