Abstract: In an articulatory study of Norwegian retroflexes, SMC [Simonsen, H. G., Moen, I., & Cowen, S. (2008). Norwegian retroflex stops in a cross linguistic perspective. Journal of Phonetics 36, 385–405] report that one speaker produced his retroflexes as alveolars. I argue here that the data presented in SMC show that all speakers produced their retroflexes as postalveolars, in agreement with earlier descriptions in the literature.
