An example of this sound is the clucking sound used by equestrians to urge their horses on.
Features of this consonant:
Its manner of articulation is click, which means it is produced with two articulatory closures in the oral cavity. The pocket of air enclosed between the two closures is rarefied by a "sucking" action of the tongue. The release of the more forward closure produces the 'click' sound.
