In English and most other European languages, P is a voiceless bilabial plosive. Both initial and final Ps can be combined with many other discrete consonants in English words. A common example of assimilation is the tendency of prefixes ending in N to assume an M sound before Ps (such as in + pulse → impulse — see also List of Latin words with English derivatives).
A common digraph in English is ph, which represents the voiceless labiodental fricative /f/, and can be used to transliterate Phi (φ) in loanwords from Greek. In German, the digraph pf is common, representing a labial affricate of /pf/.
Arabic speakers are usually unaccustomed to pronouncing /p/; they pronounce it as /b/.
