On the other hand, there are significant differences between how some phonetic 2l It requires more care to maintain voicing throughout velar stops than throughout stops made at places further forward in the mouth, because there is less available space in which air coming through the glottis can accumulate between the velum and the glottis than between the alveolar ridge or the lips and the glottis.

Speech sounds that are characterized by a relatively unimpeded flow of air "resonate" and are thus referred to as sonorants. ], and fricatives, such as [J3] and [x], as woHsonorants23 because of the high degree to which the airflow is impeded. , have airflow through the mouth), and those which are nasal (have airflow exclusively through the nose, not through the mouth). 24 • Finally, oral sonorants are either central or lateral depending on whether the air flows over the center of the tongue or over its sides.
