Voiced uvular plosive


Voiced uvular plosive

The voiced uvular plosive is a type of consonantal sound, used in some spoken languages. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is IPA|ɢ, and the equivalent X-SAMPA symbol is G.

IPA| [ɢ] is a rare sound, even compared to other uvulars. See Voiced velar plosive for a possible reason.

Features

Features of the voiced uvular plosive:

* Its manner of articulation is plosive or stop, which means it is produced by obstructing airflow in the vocal tract.
* 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.
* It is an oral consonant, which means air is allowed to escape through the mouth.
* It is a central consonant, which means it is produced by allowing the airstream to flow over the middle of the tongue, rather than the sides.
* The airstream mechanism is pulmonic egressive, which means it is articulated by pushing air out of the lungs and through the vocal tract, rather than from the glottis or the mouth.
