The Extensions to the IPA symbol is both a superscript and a subscript bridge, &thinsp IPA   &thinsp . Besides interdental consonant s such as IPA n , which involve the tongue, there is at least one confirmed attestation of a true bidental consonant in normal language. The Black Sea sub dialect of the Shapsug dialect of Adyghe language Adyghe has a voiceless bidental fricative voiceless bidental non sibilant fricative where other dialects have IPA x , such as x six and dax pretty . Therefore it might best be transcribed phonemically as IPA x . However, there is no frication at the soft palate velum . The teeth themselves are the only constriction The lips are fully open, the teeth clenched and the tongue flat, the air passing between the teeth the sound is intermediate between IPA and IPA f L&M 1996 144 145 .

Examples A good discussion of consonant harmony typology is found in Rose and Walker s 2004 paper in the journal Language . A Typology of Consonant Agreement as Correspondence. One of the more common harmony processes is coronal harmony . This type of harmony affects the coronal fricatives, such as s and sh in a word, requiring all the coronal fricatives in the word to belong either to the Alveolar consonant anterior class s like sounds or the Postalveolar consonant anterior class sh like sounds . Such patterns are found in the Dene Athabaskan languages such as Navajo language Navajo Young and Morgan 1987, McDonough 2003 , Tahltan Shaw 1991 , Western Apache language Western Apache , and in Chumashan languages Chumash on the California coast Applegate 1972, Campbell 1997 , to name a few examples ... consonant alveolar fricative , as in the following forms unicode s ik a container and its ... rigid inanimate objects are in position Thus all the sibilant obstruents fricatives and affricates ..., as in most languages with consonant harmony, there is a constraint on the shape of roots ... word, even at a distance.

  1. Oral consonant

    Unreferenced date December 2009 An oral consonant is a consonant sound speech sound in Speech communication speech that is made by allowing air to escape from the mouth, as opposed to the nose. To create an intended oral consonant sound, the entire mouth plays a role in modifying the air s passageway. This rapid modification of the air passageway using the tongue and lips makes changes to the waveform of the sound by compressing and expanding the air. In addition to the nose and mouth, the vocal cords and lungs also make a contribution to producing speech by controlling the volume amplitude and pitch music pitch frequency of the sound. The use of the vocal cords will also determine whether the consonant is Voice phonetics voiced or voiceless . The vast majority of consonants are oral consonants, such as, for example IPA p , w , v or IPA x . The others are nasal, such as the nasal stop s IPA m or IPA .

The term radical was coined to help disambiguate pharyngeal , which had come to mean any consonant articulated in the throat, whether the articulator was the back of the tongue high pharyngeals or the epiglottis low pharyngeals . However, the term pharyngeal is still commonly used in the broader sense, and authors such as Miller 2005 prefer guttural , which may include glottal consonant s as well.

  1. Dorsal consonant

    Place of articulation Dorsal consonants are articulated with the mid body of the tongue the dorsum . They contrast with coronal consonant s articulated with the flexible front of the tongue, and radical consonant s articulated with the root of the tongue. Function The dorsum of the tongue can contact a broad region of the roof of the mouth, from the hard palate so called palatal consonant s , the flexible soft palate velum behind that velar consonant s , to the Palatine uvula uvula at the back of the mouth cavity uvular consonant s . These distinctions are not clear cut, and sometimes finer gradations such as pre palatal, pre velar, and post velar will be noted. Because the tip of the tongue can curl back to also contact the hard palate for retroflex consonant s, consonants produced by contact between the dorsum and the palate are sometimes called dorso palatal. In different languages The most common pronunciation of the English letter G as in the g arden or to g rab is dorsal, a voiced velar plosive . The pronunciation of the letters K, Q, and sometimes C as in the c ake or to c rawl is similarly dorsal, a voiceless velar plosive . Two English language English Approximant consonant approximant s, Y as in y ellow and W as in w hite, are also dorsal consonants, palatal and Labialisation labialised velar respectively. The German language German CH sound, found in Scottish English lo ch , is a dorsal Fricative consonant fricative .
