I have try to use mtext but I cannot plot the description below the x-axis.

I have used 
and the text appears between the axis and the names.arg But I wont it below the args, above the axis-labels.


?mtext, also ?barplot since barplot returns midpoints of the bars.

also ?rep for setting up a vector of repeating values.

something like this:
midPoints<-barplot(<your original statements here>)
