flapped-r in phonetic fonts (was Schwa in WP 5.1?)

I don't know about WordPerfect, but unless it is a really primitive system
compared to Word (or even decades-old word processors such as WriteNow) the
phonetic fonts should be easy to addto the other list of fonts. I have five
different phonetic fonts (Times IPA and Times Phonetic Alternate, Stone Serif
IPA&Phonetic Alternate, and PhonetiqueIPA. Why not just go to one of the many
sites that have them and give it a try?

My problem is that none of the sets that I have has a proper symbol for
flapped-r. Does anybody know of a set that has a flapped-r symbol?

<< Have any of y'all had any experience with either creating or importing a
schwa and "open O" (backward "c") into WordPerfect 5.1? I can get most of
the other phonetic symbols I need either using the compose feature or
selecting from one of the non-English tables. I tried without success
rotating a "e" for the schwa, but did not try reversing the "c". I know
SIL has a phonetic font available for downloading, but don't know whether
there is any way to import the characters into WP 5.1.

        Thanks in advance for any information,
