THE CONSONANT INVENTORY Used primarily for breathing and eating secondarily for speaking constrcting airflow in the mouth at various points, we make the distinctive sounds for human speech. The vocal tract has active and passivearticulators. They are also know as articulators and points articulation. ARTICULATORY BASIS Four principal dimiensions are considered when regarding “consonant articulation” voicing articulator and point of the articulation cavity and manner.

When vocal cordsvibrated, it is said to be voiced; otherwise, it is siad to be voiceless Voiced voicelessconsonant A simple s. explanation of voiced Voiceless consonants consonants is do not used the voice. that they used They are percussive the voice. This is and hard sounds. You easy to test by can test if a consonant putting your is voiceless by putting finger on your your finger on your throat. throat

PHONEMIC AND PHONETIC CONSONANT CONTRAST STOP OR PLOSIVEThe active articulator English and Spanish touches the passive stops include: /p/. /b/ articuator and /p/. /d/,/k/. /g/.If /p/, completely the /t/. or/k/ are airflow through the pronounced at the mouth beginning of an English word, a strong puff of breath will be felt it is The puff of air creates a called aspiration variation of the basic phoneme in English . To prove this, say “ tip” the aspiration will be felt or move the paper slip. If /p/,/t or /k// are pronounced in the middle or end of a word, that aspiration will not be there..
PHONEMIC AND PHONETIC CONSONANT CONTRAST OF CONTRAST. ENGLISH AND SPANISH STOPS The active articulator touches the passive articulator and completely cuts of the airflow through the mouth. STOP OR English and spanish stops include: /p/ PLOSIVE /b/ /t/ /d/ /k/ /g/. If /p/ /t/ or /k/ are pronounced at the beginning of an english words a strong puff of breath will be felt. It is called aspiration HOMORGANIC This refers to sounds made at the SOUNDS same place of articulation literally, with the same organ.
HOMORGANIC SOUND In phonetic, this , but with most refers to sound sound the organ ismade at the same even though the ten tongue so in place of lower lip also these cases it refersarticulation, literally porduces to which point in with the same or homorganic sound the oral cavity the organ tongue is touching
