I had my doubts about the existence of nasal flaps but checked with a phonetician, a colleague of mine, and she says that nasal flaps common and "flap" is indeed the term. In the relevant pronunciation of ATLANTA "nasal flap" is apparently the correct term. How about that, Peter? We are on the same side this time!
