  Stop consonant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A stop, plosive, or occlusive is a consonant sound produced by stopping the airflow in the vocal tract.
The term plosive is reserved for oral (non-nasal) stops: that is, stops with a release burst.
Initial voiceless plosives, like the p in pie, are aspirated, with a palpable puff of air upon release, while a plosive after an s, as in spy, is tenuis.

Palatal consonants (known to Poles as "soft" consonants) are marked either by an acute accent or followed by an i.
In consonant clusters all consonants are either voiced or voiceless.
The consonants w and rz are normally voiced, but if a consonant cluster ends with w or rz and the last but one consonant is normally voiceless, then the whole consonant cluster is voiceless.

 Dorsal consonant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dorsal consonants are articulated with the back of the tongue against either the hard palate, or the flexible velum just behind it, or even against the uvula.
The English pronunciation of the letter C — either before the vowels a, o and u, or before the letters l and r — is a dorsal consonant.
This consonant is also the pronunciation of the English letters k and q.

Note that the terms prenasalization and postnasalization are normally only used in languages where these sounds are not analyzed into sequences of plosive and nasal stop.
There are a series of stops in Korean, sometimes written with the IPA symbol for ejectives, which are produced using "", meaning there is increased contraction of the glottis than for normal production of voiceless stops.
Here are some of the oral stops (plosives) and their symbols in the IPA.) See also the nasal stops.

 How to make the sounds in Wolof - Consonants   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
It does not occur as a single consonant at the end of a word, but note that j in final position preceded by a vowel is usually voiceless (i.e [c]).
When it occurs at the end of a word preceded by a vowel it is unreleased and often voiceless ([k]), or may be produced as an implosive.
A prenasalised sound begins as a nasal with the air stream escaping through the nose, but the velum rises to close the velic passage just as the articulation in the mouth begins, so that there is effectively a very short nasal onset to the oral sound.

 CONSONANT - Definition   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
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.

In the cases of vowel pairs the first vowel is a spread vowel, where the corners of the mouth are held far apart, and the second is a rounded vowel, where the lips are held in an "o" shape.
With consonant pairs, the first is unvoiced (no vocal cord vibration), the second is voiced, said exactly the same way, but with the vocal cords vibrating.
Bilabial Consonant, where the sound is produced by the motion of the lips.

A stop or plosive is a consonant sound produced by obstructing airflow in the vocal tract by the lips or tongue.
Some languages have stops made with other mechanisms too: these are called ejective, implosive, or click dependent on the mechanism.

 Thai language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is an abugida script, in which the is a short /a/ for consonants standing alone and a short /o/ if the initial consonant or cluster is followed by another consonant.
Vowels associated with consonants are nonsequential: they can be located before, after, above or below their associated consonant, or in a combination of these positions.
They are indicated in the written script by a combination of the class of the initial consonant (high, mid or low), vowel length (long or short), closing consonant (unvoiced/plosive or voiced/sonorant) and sometimes one of four tone marks.

Consonants which can be held on continuously without change of quality are sometimes classed together as contunatives or continuantsl they include nasal, lateral, rolled, fricative consonants and frictionless sounds.

When saying a voiced plosive consonant (G, B, D), just before this consonant is spoken, the mouth shuts completely, and the voice sound is muffled during a short period of time.
Air pressure increases in the closed mouth until the lips open again, and the consonant is emitted with a strong power (which is why these phonemes are called plosives).

Semitic Pê (mouth) as well as Greek Π or π (Pi) and the Etruscan and Latin letters that developed from the former alphabet all symbolized /p/, a plosive, unvoiced consonant.
In English and most other European languages, P is a voiceless bilabial plosive ('p' in the IPA).
A common example of assimilation is the tendency of prefixes ending in N to become M before P (such as "in" + "pulse" -> "impulse").

 LAS3
Improper coupling of consonants to vowels, especially in the case of plosive consonants, can wreak havoc with vowel stability.
The student, of course, uses speech parameters to judge the amount of plosive needed and does not realize that the amount of plosive produced must be far greater in singing than in speech.
It is most often the case that a poorly produced consonant cripples the following vowel or, a vowel is compromised by the brain trying to move the oral structure into position for the next consonant during the vowel (we call both of these occurances "consonant-shadow").

This holds for C = stop and to some extent for C = fricative — that is, when the consonant is a plosive and often when the consonant is a fricative.
Notice although there are two pairs of plosive (two for English and two for French) these are in fact realised as only three different signals: the waveform in the French voiceless instance is the same as that for the English voiced instance.
You will notice that for the phonological sequence of [–voice] consonant followed by a vowel in English the VOT is between around 20–50 ms; for [+voice] followed by vowel sequences the VOT is between –2 and +2 ms approximately.

Uvulars are consonants articulated with the back of the tongue against or near the uvula, that is, further back in the mouth than velar consonants.
Most uvular consonants are either stops or fricatives, but a very small number of languages use them as nasals, trills, or approximants.
The voiceless uvular plosive is expressed as /q/ in most transliteration schemes, including the IPA and SAMPA, and is pronounced similarly to the voiceless velar plosive /k/, but with the middle of one's tongue against the soft uvula rather than the velum.

 Articles - Implosive consonant   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Implosive consonants are plosives (rarely affricates) with a glottalic ingressive airstream mechanism.
This is the opposite pattern to the ejective consonants, where it is the velar articulation that is most common, and the bilabial that is rare.
Fully voiced plosives are often slightly implosive, although this is not always described explicitly, as there is no contrast with modal-voiced plosives in such languages.
