Sound Sound sample?

The voiced alveolar implosive is a type of consonantal sound, used in some spoken languages. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is ɗ, and the equivalent X-SAMPA symbol is d_<.

Features

Features of the voiced alveolar implosive:

In speech there are different ways of producing a consonant. ... A stop, plosive or occlusive is a consonant sound produced by stopping the airflow in the vocal tract. ... 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. ... 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). ... The space between the vocal cords is called the glottis. ...

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). ... 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. ... 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. ... 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. ... Clicks are stops produced with two articulatory closures in the oral cavity. ...

Voiced uvular implosive - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article (208 words)
The voiced uvular implosive is a type of consonantal sound, used in some spoken languages.
Its place of articulation is uvular which means it is articulated with the back of the tongue (the dorsum) against or near the uvula.
Its phonation type is voiced, which means the vocal cords are vibrating during the articulation.
Alveolar consonant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (342 words)
Alveolar consonants are articulated with the tongue against or close to the superior alveolar ridge, which is called that because it contains the alveoli (the sockets) of the superior teeth.
Alveolar consonants may be articulated with the tip of the tongue (so-called apical consonants), as in English, or with the flat of the tongue just above the tip (the "blade" of the tongue; called laminal consonants), as in French and Spanish.
The laminal alveolar articulation is often mistakenly called dental, because the tip of the tongue can be seen near to or touching the teeth.
