How would you say r (or any other lower case letter).
What about for puzzles that could have multiple types of r wide (bigger than 3x3?)
Literally just "ar" and "three ar" / "four ar" etc. There's basically no risk of confusion, although if disambiguation is really necessary, I'd probably say "ar wide", "three ar wide", etc. for the wide moves and "two ar", "three ar" for the slice moves. Basically, just reading SiGN / WCA notation out loud.

Since the 3x3 OAQT is down, I’m just going to have to post this here. So, there’s only a 1/12 chance that a randomly assembled cube will be possible to solve. Are the other 11/12 just because of impossible orientation, or is there also impossible permutations.

It's because you can't do an odd number of swaps. Watch J Perm's new video on parity for a better explanation.

For some reason I always do better in the morning and early afternoon (after I’ve warmed up that is) than I do later in the day. Like I consistently get 17s early in the day, but towards the end of the day, I struggle to maintain this consistency.
