The voiceless labiodental fricative occurs in English, and it is generally spelled with the letter F except in words borrowed from Greek.
The voiceless palatal-velar fricative (also voiceless dorso-palatal velar fricative, voiceless postalveolar and velar fricative, voiceless coarticulated velar and palatoalveolar fricative) is a term used for a range of similar sounds used in most dialects of Swedish to realize the phoneme.
