Consonants

What Are Consonants?

Consonants are sounds that we produce with complete or partial stricture of the vocal tract.

How We Produce Them?

The body parts that we use to produce consonants are:

  • the lips: /b/ and /p/
  • the front of the tongue: /d/ and /t/
  • the back of the tongue: /k/ and /g/
  • the throat: /h/
  • by forcing air: /s/
  • through the nose: /n/ and /m/

English Consonants

We use the word 'consonant' to refer to both speech sounds and the letters of the alphabet used to write them. In English, these letters are

B /b/ F /f/ K /k/
C /s/, /k/ G /d̠ʒ/, /g/ L /l/
