  Consonant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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, which is the case in Latin.
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 the consonant [j] in "yoke" but for the vowel [ɪ] in "myth", for example.
The phonation method of a consonant is whether or not the vocal cords are vibrating during articulation of a consonant.

A stop or plosive is a consonant sound produced by obstructing airflow in the vocal tract by the lips or tongue.
Usually the term "stop" is used to refer to oral stops only, with nasal stops called simply nasals.
Stops may be made with more than one airstream mechanism.

 Affricate consonant - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
An affricate is a consonant that begins like a stop (most often an alveovelar, such as [t] or [d]) and that doesn't have a release of its own, but opens directly into a fricative (or, in one language, into a trilled).
The difference is that in the sequence of stop and fricative, the stop has a release of its own before the fricative starts.
The reason why they're considered to be sequences of stop plus fricative is that beyond mere phonetics, English [ts] and [dz] are analyzed into different morphemes (e.g.

Consonants involve interrupting the air that comes out of your mouth; vowels are made by opening the mouth and letting air come out freely.
The stop consonants are distinguished by what part of your mouth you use to block the air.

 HLW: Word Forms: Units: Consonants 1
The place of articulation for this consonant is one we didn't encounter for English stops; it is the second of the possible places associated with the lips (in addition to bilabial place of articulation).
For nasal consonants, the air is allowed to pass through the nasal cavity, but it also resonates in the oral cavity, and the place of articulation (within the oral cavity) distinguishes different nasal consonants from one another.
The consonants that are the least vowel-like are stops, which involve a complete closure of the vocal tract and cannot be pronounced continuously.

 Consonant   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
A consonant is a sound in spoken language that is characterized by a constriction or closure at one or more points along the vocal tract.
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.

 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.

In affricate stops, the release simultaneously is a fricative.
Some linguists consider nasal consonants to be nasal stops, which are differentiated from the oral stop only by the lowered velum that allows the air to escape through the nose during the production of the nasal stop.
A postnasalized (oral) stop begins with a raised velum that lowers during the second phase of the stop articulation.

The glottal stop is made by briefly adducting the vocal folds, while for the stop consonant, the vocal folds are abducted.
The different glottal adjustments for the two consonants are clearly reflected in the patterns of change in the maximum flow.
For the glottal stop, the pattern is one of fall and rise during the preceding and following vowel, respectively.

 Lateral consonant   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Laterals are "L"-like consonants pronounced with an occlusion made somewhere along the axis of the tongue, while air from the lungs escapes at one side or both sides of the tongue.
The other variant, so-called dark [l] (found before consonants or word-finally as in bold or tell), is pronounced with the tongue assuming a spoon-like shape and its back part raised, which gives the sound an [u]-like resonance.
Rarer lateral consonants include the sound of Welsh ll, which is a voiceless lateral fricative, and the retroflex laterals as can be found in most Hindustani languages.

 Formant Transitions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
During the closure interval for a (non-nasal) stop consonant, the vocal tract is completely closed, and no sound escapes through the mouth.
However, at the moment of release of the stop constriction the resonances of the vocal tract change rapidly.
Using this device, it was discovered that the direction and extent of second and third formant transitions were sufficient to determine the perception of "place of articulation" (constrictor type).

 INSTRUCTIONS FOR ICSLP96 AUTHORS
Stops represent the most extreme articulation (full oral and nasal closure with cessation of air flow), marked by abrupt acoustic changes in the signal at both closure and release and low or zero amplitude between these two gestures (Stevens 1998).
Thus, stop consonants can be viewed as the strongest class of phonemic segments, perhaps less likely to undergo phonetic modification in context, or at least more likely to retain their consonantal character despite reduction or weakening.
Similarly, stop consonants, which are among the strongest consonants on several dimensions, may be more resistant to phonetic weakening than other consonant types.

Voiced stop consonants (/b/, /g/, and /d/) in syllable initial position are characterized by short VOTs, while unvoiced stop consonants (/p/, /k/, and /t/) contain prolonged VOTs.
As the VOT is increased in incremental steps, perception rapidly changes from a voiced stop consonant to an unvoiced consonant at an interval of 20-40 msec.

A velar stop /k/ metathesizes with an adjacent coronal fricative /s/ just in case it is followed by another stop consonant.
No suffixes begin with stops at other places of articulation so again, it is not possible to determine whether all stops trigger the process, though it is reasonable to assume that that would be the case given the similar patterning of stops in other processes (see Related Processes).
A medial stop consonant is preserved in a triconsonantal cluster when followed by a non-stop, both in monomorphemic and polymorphemic forms, e.g.

An affricate is a consonant that begins like a stop (most often an alveovelar, such as [t] or [d]) but ends with a fricative or, in one language, a trilled release.
Also quite uncommon are alveovelar affricates where the fricative is lateral, such as the [tl] sound found in Nahuatl and Totonac.

In many languages, such as Malay and Vietnamese, final stops lack a release burst, or have a nasal release.
A prenasalized stop starts out with a lowered velum that raises during the occlusion.
The duration between the release of the stop and the voice onset is called voice onset time (VOT).

You must also consider the class of the initial consonants (low, middle or high) and if they are live or dead syllables.
The latter is worked out by looking at the vowel sound (short or long) and whether the final consonant is a sonorant final (voiced) or a stop final (unvoiced).
A syllable that ends with a long vowel or a sonorant final consonant is called a live syllable.

SVMs were applied to the problem of detection of stop consonants [5] and the results were compared to a stop detector built by using HMMs with an MFCC front end.
Stops are characterized by period of silence (closure) followed by sudden release in energy (onset) and then a sudden fall in energy (offset).
The error estimate in detection of sonorant consonants is high because boundaries between vowels and sonorant consonants are not well defined and there is a lot of overlap in the training data.
