  Voiced alveolar fricative - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Its manner of articulation is sibilant fricative, which means it is produced by directing air flow through a groove in the tongue at the place of articulation and directing it over the sharp edge of the teeth, causing high-frequency turbulence.
Its place of articulation is alveolar, which means it is articulated with either the tip or the blade of the tongue against the alveolar ridge, termed respectively apical and laminal.
Its manner of articulation is simple fricative, which means it is produced by constricting air flow through a narrow channel at the place of articulation, causing turbulence, but without the grooved tongue and directed airflow, or the high frequencies, of a sibilant.

Voiced alveolar affricate /dz/ (that was written 'z') merged with the voiceless /ts/ (that was written 'ç,ce,ci'), and then /ts/ evolved into the interdental /T/, now written 'z,ce,ci'.

 How to pronounce Hebrew
Voiced labiodental fricative v Note: Although the more logical choice would might been the voiced bilabial fricative (as Ancient Greek "beta"), this is not at all attested in Hebrew; all modern pronounciations have /v/ (except Babylonian which has aspirated /b/, but this seems borrowed, since no other Semitic languages use aspiration).
Voiced velar fricative gh The Yemenite "jimmel" seems a clear borrowing from Arabic, as no other Semitic languages have it, and it breaks the otherwise clear consistency of dagesh hazaq.
Voiceless labiodental fricative f Although (as for beth) the more logical choice might have been the unvoiced bilabial fricative (as Ancient Greek "phi"), this is not at all attested in Hebrew; all modern pronounciations have /f/ (except Babylonian which has aspirated /p/, but this seems borrowed, since no other Semitic languages use aspiration).

 Consonants: Fricatives   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Fricatives are consonants that are formed by impeding the flow of air somewhere in the vocal apparatus so that a friction-sound is produced.
Because of the way the flow of breath is heard in producing fricatives, fricatives are also called spirants.
Fricatives may be voiced (vocal cords vibrating during the articulation of the fricative) or voiceless (vocal cords not vibrating during the articulation of the fricative).

Sometimes a dot is placed above the letter (qûššāyâ, or strengthening; equivalent to a dagesh in Hebrew) to mark that the plosive pronunciation is required, and a dot is placed below the letter (rûkkāḵâ, or softening) to mark that the fricative pronunciation is required.
Voiced labial pair — /b/ and /v/ (in eastern dialects these are /b/ and /w/)

The tenth symbol is a voiced stop followed by a voiced fricative, also known as a voiced affricate, and written as the voiced stop with two hatches on the tail.
The alveolar stops, which by rights should have two tails, one as a part of the core symbol and because they are stops, are reverses of the corresponding fricative, giving them a tail where they should have one (on the left), and a stem where the tail is in the core symbol (on the left).
Alveolar consonants are made with the tip of the tongue touching (or almost touching) the alveolar ridge.

The /ŝ/ of 'ŝipo/ is a prepalatal fricative in the sense that the front part of the tongue touches the front part of the palate immediately behind the alveolar ridge.
To say that 'dz' represents a voiced phoneme has the disadvantage that it violates the principle that each phoneme is represented by a unique letter in the spelling system of the langauge.
All that remains is to add two interdental fricatives: the 'th' in 'then', which is voiced, and the 'th' in 'thin', which is unvoiced.

 Linguistique UNIL - True fricatives
This section describes the dorsal fricatives and the fricatives where the dorsal/lateral opposition is unimportant.
The realization of a hisser requires a high degree of tension in the tongue: a groove is formed along the whole length of the tongue, in particular at the place of articulation where the air passes through a little round opening.
This symbol stands for both a fricative articulation and a spirant articulation, according to the degree of tension of the articulators.

 s - Article and Reference from OnPedia.com
Semitic Šn (bow) was pronounced as the voiceless postalveolar fricative (like the sound of the letters sh in ship).
Greek did not have this sound, so the Greek sigma (Σ) came to represent the voiceless alveolar fricative (like the sound of the letter s in sit).
In Etruscan and Latin, the value was maintained, and only in modern languages has the letter been used to represent other sounds, such as voiceless postalveolar fricative in Hungarian or the voiced alveolar fricative in English, French and German (in English rise; in French lisez (="read" imperative plural); in German lesen (="to read").

 Vaal Triangle Info Encylopedia - D   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The letter D generally represents a voiced alveolar plosive, IPA /d/ in most languages that use the Roman alphabet, including English.
Exceptions to this include Vietnamese, where it represents a voiced alveolar fricative (/z/) or a palatal approximant (/j/), similar to the English letters z or y (the letter đ is used for the sound similar to the English d).
Digraphs of D are rare in English, although other languages use DH or DD for a voiced dental fricative (some Celtic languages) or an aspirated voiced dental plosive (some Indo-Aryan languages), or use affricates DZ, DV, or DZH.

Second row, L to R: = voiced interdental fricative = vocal cords are vibrating, so sound is voiced; tongue is between teeth, so sound is interdental; the only voiced interdental in English is this sound.
[z] = vocal cords are vibrating, so sound is voiced; tongue is near, but not touching, alveolar ridge = alveolar fricative.
[b] =vocal cords are vibrating, so sound is voiced; lips are closed (stop), so sound is bilabial; nasal passage is closed, so sound is not nasal.

 Serbian language - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
In consonant clusters all consonants are either voiced or voiceless.
This rule does not apply to approximants — a consonant cluster may contain voiced approximants and voiceless consonants; as well as to foreign words (Washington would be transcribed as VašinGton/ВашинГтон), personal names and when consonants are not inside of one syllable.
R can be syllabic, playing the role of a vowel in certain words (occasionally, it can even have a long accent).
www.arikah.net /encyclopedia/Serbian_language   (1087 words)

  
 Phonology
Similarly the IPA values should be regarded as indicative rather than definitive: for instance, anyone should be at liberty to pronounce a voiced alveolar "r" sound as /ɾ/ - a tap or flap, as /r/ - a trill, or as /ɹ/ - an approximant, so long as the word being uttered is recognisable.
This might tend to be rejected as unprecedented, but the "letter shape" is surely appropriate, and the voiceless uvular plosive [q] is right next to the voiced velar plosive [g] in any case.
Notable for their absence from the suggested Lang25 phonology are the common English phonemes /θ/ and /ð/ (/dh/ and /th/) the voiced and voiceless dental fricatives - as in "the" and "thin".

The European Castilian phoneme /T/ (interdental voiceless fricative, SAMPA phonetic scheme used) (as in ciento, caza) does not exist in American Castilian, it fell together with /s/ (as in ser, casa).
In Argentina, /j/ and /L/ are generally pronounced as /Z/ (palatal voiced fricative) as in French 'jour'.

Thus, the voiced alveolar fricative and voiceless alveolar fricative, when affixed to nouns to indicate plurality, are allomorphs.
