Implosive consonants are glottalic ingressive consonants, meaning that air is sucked into the mouth while pronouncing them rather than expelled out of the mouth via the lungs as in pulmonic consonants. This is accomplished by making a closure in the vocal tract (using lips, tongue or other articulators), and then lowering the glottis. For voiced sounds, it is partially closed; while for unvoiced it is completely closed. This decreases pressure in the vocal tract. The initial closure is then opened, sucking air into the mouth and producing a muffled sound. In speech there are different ways of producing a consonant. ... A nasal consonant is produced when the velum—that fleshy part of the palate near the back—is lowered, allowing air to escape freely through the nose. ... A stop, plosive or occlusive is a consonant sound produced by stopping the airflow in the vocal tract. ... Fricative consonants are produced by forcing air through a narrow channel made by placing two articulators close together (e. ... Affricate consonants begin like stops (most often an alveovelar, such as or ) and that doesnt have a release of its own, but opens directly into a fricative such as or (or, in one language, into a trill). ... 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. ... Laterals are L-like consonants pronounced with an occlusion made somewhere along the axis of the tongue, while air from the lungs escapes at one side or both sides of the tongue. ... Approximants are speech sounds that could be regarded as intermediate between vowels and typical consonants. ... Semivowels (also called semiconsonants or glides) are vowels that function phonemically as consonants. ... Liquid consonants, or liquids, are speech sounds; more specifically, they are approximant consonants that are not classified as semivowels (glides) because they do not correspond phonetically to specific vowels (in the way that, for example, the initial [j] in English yes corresponds to [i]). The class of liquids can be... In phonetics, a flap or tap is a type of consonantal sound, which is produced with a single contraction of the muscles so that one articulator is thrown against another. ... In phonetics, a trill is a consonantal sound produced by vibrations between the articulator and the place of articulation. ... Ejective consonants are a class of consonants which may contrast with aspirated or unaspirated consonants in a language. ... Clicks are stops produced with two articulatory closures in the oral cavity. ... Phonetics (from the Greek word phone = sound/voice) is the study of speech sounds (voice). ... The International Phonetic Alphabet is a phonetic alphabet used by linguists to accurately and uniquely represent each of the wide variety of sounds (phones or phonemes) the human vocal apparatus can produce. ... Technical Note: Most IPA symbols are not included in Times New Roman, the default font for Latin scripts in Internet Explorer for Windows. ... A glottalic consonant is a consonant produced with some important contribution (a movement, a closure) of the glottis (the opening that leads from the nose and mouth cavities into the larynx and the lungs). ... A consonant is a sound in spoken language that is characterized by a closure or stricture sufficient to cause audible turbulence, at one or more points along the vocal tract. ... This page is a candidate to be moved to Wiktionary. ...

The vast majority of implosive consonants are voiced. Implosive consonants are particularly frequent among African languages. A voiced implosive consonant is a consonant that is produced with the glottalic ingressive airstream mechanism, meaning air is pulled into the vocal tract, rather than expelled out of it. ... The term African languages refers to the approximately 1800 languages spoken in Africa. ...
