Features

Features of the alveolar ejective fricative:

In speech there are different ways of producing a consonant. ... A sibilant, or a strident fricative, is a type of fricative, made by speeding up air through a narrow channel and directing it over the sharp edge of the teeth. ... Fricative consonants are produced by forcing air through a narrow channel made by placing two articulators close together (e. ... Turbulent flow around an obstacle; the flow further away is laminar Laminar and turbulent water flow over the hull of a submarine Turbulence in the tip vortex from an airplane wing In fluid dynamics, turbulence or turbulent flow is a flow regime characterized by low momentum diffusion, high momentum convection... In speech, consonants may have different places of articulation, generally with full or partial stoppage of the airstream. ... Alveolars are consonants articulated with the tip of the tongue against the alveolar ridge, the internal side of the upper gums (known as the alveoles of the upper teeth). ... The alveolar ridge is the ridge on the roof of the mouth between the teeth and the hard palate. ... An apical consonant is a phone produced by obstructing the air passage with the very tip (end) of the tongue. ... A laminal consonant is a phone produced by obstructing the air passage with the flattened end of the tongue. ... Phoneticians define phonation as use of the laryngeal system to generate an audible source of acoustic energy, i. ... An oral consonant is a consonant sound in speech that is made by allowing air to escape from the mouth. ... A central or medial consonant is a consonant sound that is produced when air flows across the center of the mouth over the tongue. ... In phonetics, initiation is the action by which an air-flow is created through the vocal tract. ... Ejective consonants are a class of consonants which may contrast with aspirated or unaspirated consonants in a language. ... The space between the vocal cords is called the glottis. ...

Ejective consonant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (508 words)
Ejective consonants are a class of consonants which may contrast with aspirated or tenuis consonants in a language.
Ejectives are voiceless consonants that are pronounced with simultaneous closure of the glottis.
Among the scattered languages with ejectives elsewhere are Itelmen of the Chukotko-Kamchatkan languages and Yapese of the Austronesian family.
Alveolar ejective fricative - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (196 words)
The alveolar ejective fricative is a type of consonantal sound, used in some spoken languages.
Its manner of articulation is fricative, which means it is produced by constricting air flow through a narrow channel at the place of articulation, causing turbulence.
Its place of articulation is alveolar which means it is articulated with the tip of the tongue against the alveolar ridge.
