  Approximant consonant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Approximants are speech sounds that could be regarded as intermediate between vowels and typical consonants.
When emphasized, approximants may be slightly fricated (that is, the airstream may become slightly turbulent), which is reminiscent of fricatives.
Occasionally the glottal "fricatives" are called approximants as well, but they are actually phonations of the glottis without any accompanying manner or place of articulation.

Its place of articulation is 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.
Alveolar consonants are articulated with the tongue against or close to the superior alveolar ridge, which is called that because it contains the alveoli (the sockets) of the superior teeth.

 Lateral consonant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Most laterals are approximants and belong to the class of liquids.
One, found before vowels as in lady or fly, is called clear l, pronounced as the alveolar lateral approximant [l] with a "neutral" position of the body of the tongue.
The other variant, so-called dark l found before consonants or word-finally, as in bold or tell, is pronounced as the velarized alveolar lateral approximant [ɫ] with the tongue assuming a spoon-like shape with its back part raised, which gives the sound a [w]- or [ɰ]-like resonance.

The approximate population of the Timucua at the time of Columbus is estimated to be around 200,000 people.

 How do you pronounce your L's? | Antimoon Forum
alveolar l (clear l): the tip of the tongue touches the alveolar ridge behind the teeth, but the back of the tongue isn't raised towards the velum.
A "clear l" is just [l], that is, a voiced alveolar lateral approximant, a "dark l" is [5], that is, a voiced velarized alveolar lateral approximant, and a "vocalized l" is just [w], that is, a voiced labiovelar approximant.
Mind you that I don't think that alveolar ridge is necessarily directly touched, even though it may be, in [5], but I think that the velum /is/ touched, or at least gotten close to.

Approximants are speech sounds that could be regarded as intermediate between (A speech sound made with the vocal tract open) vowels and typical (A speech sound that is not a vowel) consonants.
In the articulation of approximants, articulatory organs produce a narrowing of the vocal tract, but leave enough space for air to flow without audible turbulence — approximants are therefore more open than (A continuant consonant produced by breath moving against a narrowing of the vocal tract) fricatives.
This class of sounds includes l-like (A pass to a receiver upfield from the passer) lateral approximants like as in lip and so-called (A vowel-like sound that serves as a consonant) semivowels like or as in yes and well.

 Phonetics and Phonology
This has simplified the symbolic representation of this phoneme which can be realised in a number of different ways in various English dialects (alveolar, post-alveolar and retroflex approximants are the most common, but alveolar trills and taps as well as uvular trills also occur in some dialects).
In Australian English this phoneme is usually realised as an alveolar or a post-alveolar approximant.
Alveolar assimilation is extremely common, but exceptions to these rules do occur, even in casual connected speech.

The symbol ɬ is called "belted l" and should not be confused with "l with tilde", [ɫ], which corresponds to a different sound, the velarized alveolar lateral approximant.
It should also be distinguished from a voiceless alveolar lateral approximant, although either may sometimes be described as a "voiceless l".
Its manner of articulation is fricative, which means it is produced by constricting air flow through a narrow channel at the place of articulation, causing turbulence.
