The voiceless alveolar lateral affricate is a type of

Americanist phonetic notationit is <ƛ> (lambda bar).
Features of the voiceless alveolar lateral affricate:
manner of articulationis affricate, which means it is produced by stopping air flow entirely, followed by forcing it through a narrow channel, causing turbulence.
place of articulationis alveolar, which means it is articulated with either the tip or the blade of the tongue against the alveolar ridge, termed respectively "apical" and "laminal".
phonationtype is voiceless, which means it is produced without vibrations of the vocal cords.
* It is an
oral consonant, which means air is allowed to escape through the mouth.
* It is a
lateral consonant, which means it is produced by allowing the airstream to flow over the sides of the tongue, rather than the middle of the tongue.
airstream mechanismis pulmonic egressive, which means it is articulated by pushing air out of the lungs and through the vocal tract, rather than from the glottisor the mouth.
