 Consonant - SmartyBrain Encyclopedia and Dictionary   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The word consonant comes from Latin meaning "sounding with" or "sounding together", the idea being that consonants don't sound on their own, but only occur with a nearby vowel, although this conception of consonants does not reflect a modern linguistic understanding of consonants, which defines consonants in terms of vocal tract constrictions.
Consonant letters in the English alphabet are B, C, D, F, G, H, J, K, L, M, N, P, Q, R, S, T, V, W, X, Z, and sometimes Y — the letter Y stands for a consonant in "yoke" but for a vowel in "myth", for example.
The phonation method of a consonant is whether or not the vocal cords are vibrating during articulation of a consonant.

 CONSONANT - Definition
Note: Consonants are divided into various classes, as mutes, spirants, sibilants, nasals, semivowels, etc.
All of them are sounds uttered through a closer position of the organs than that of a vowel proper, although the most open of them, as the semivowels and nasals, are capable of being used as if vowels, and forming syllables with other closer consonants, as in the English feeble (-b'l), taken (-k'n).
All the consonants excepting the mutes may be indefinitely, prolonged in utterance without the help of a vowel, and even the mutes may be produced with an aspirate instead of a vocal explosion.

 Rules of Sandhi
Any consonant --except Nasals, Semivowels and Sibilants-- is changed to the first of its class, when followed by a hard consonant (this is "mainly" a kind of complement to the 2nd sub-rule of the second rule of Consonant Sandhi; go to the 4th rule for more specific information about changes in Sibilants).
The consonant "s" belonging to either a Substitute (i.e., when "s" is intended to be substituted in order to form inflected forms) or a Termination is obligatorily changed to "s" when preceded by a Vowel (except "a" and "aa"), a Semivowel, a Guttural or "h".
This rule is a kind of complement to both the 7th Rule of Consonant Sandhi and (a)/(b) of the second sub-rule of the 4th Rule of Consonant Sandhi.

 HLW: Word Forms: Processes: Assimilation
The label on the arrow connecting the phoneme to its dental allophone means that that allophone is appropriate when the phoneme occurs before a dental consonant.
The "_" represents the position of the phoneme, that is, directly before the dental consonant.
But notice that the change from an alveolar to a dental consonant should not interfere seriously with comprehension because the resulting sounds are quite similar to the original ones and because English has no dental stop or dental nasal phonemes that could be confused with the sounds that result.

And when it appears before a vowel (at eight o'clock), the consonant, as pronounced by North Americans anyway, is voiced and articulated as a tap rather than a stop.
In the middle of words, the consonant is surrounded by vowels, that is, voiced sounds, so voicing it (changing it from [p] to [b]) makes it agree with the context on the voicing dimension.
There are three other consonants, the three nasals produced in the same three places of articulation as the other consonants, [m], [n], and [η].
