Mensagem:  You're absolutely right. This phonological phenomenon in AmE is called "flapping rule". It occurs whenever the alveolar stops /t/ and /d/ are between two vowels, being the first one stressed. Ex: better, butter, letter, water, writer, matter, automatic, category, etc. See lt;http://www.sk.com.br/sk-perg4.html#152gt;.
