 Consonant - Psychology Wiki
A consonant is a sound in spoken language that is characterized by a closure or stricture of the vocal tract sufficient to cause audible turbulence.
The word consonant comes from Latin and means "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 usually Y: The letter Y stands for the consonant [j] in "yoke" but for the vowel [ɪ;] in "myth", for example.

The "doubled" tap/trill is heard as a strong trill, whereas the "doubled" retroflex flap begins as a prolonged "errr" sound, something like the "r" in American English 'bird', and ends with the tongue flap.
These are produced by holding the tongue and/or lips in the position of the consonant for a longer period of time than for the corresponding simple consonants.
This alternation is referred to by linguists as palatalization, that is the change of a sound to its "palatal" counterpart when occurring before the vowels i or e, which involve raising the tongue toward the palate.

Question: what’s the difference between a consonant with secondary labialization and a consonant cluster with the labial (-velar) approximant after it?
Answer: Ideally (as phoneticians conceive of the difference), the labial part of a secondary articulation is more closely time- coordinated with the primary articulation; in the case of the C + w, the two are less closely coordinated.
But there has been little research on this and in practice the decision to analyze something as CW or Cw is based largely on phonological criteria.

Broad consonants are followed by the vowels "a" "o".
Slender consonants are followed by the vowels "e" (if a slender consonant occurs at the end of a word after the vowels "a" "o", it's preceded by a purely orthographic 'i').
In very general terms, a slender consonant is *palatalised* (ie, it has a little 'y' sound after it -- sometimes it turns a stop into a fricative).

Some people cannot ever produce a tongue tip trill, either because their tongue tip is not flexible enough or because the tip of their tongue is too closely attached to the bottom of their mouth.

If that's correct, then it's a very different phenomenon from the trill consonants, which involve a piece of soft tissue (the tongue, the lips, or the uvula) flapping in the speech airstream.
