    This is an interesting investigation.

      In the development of speech is important to the physical development of children. According to my observations the children who are engaged in dancing are the best diction, than their peers. It would be interesting to learn about research in this area.

     Note that not all English-speakers distinguish between the clear l of let and the dark l of bell.  Some have clear l in both cases, others (like me) have dark l in both cases.  And of course a majority of anglophones do pronounce the r in bird; indeed, for us there is no other vowel in bird.
