Questions about phonetics

Postby aaakknu » 2017-11-10, 21:58

What is the difference between [ʙ] and [br]; [k'] and [kʔ]; [p'] and [pʔ]?

The first sound in each of those pairs is a single sound whereas the others are clusters. [ʙ] doesn't involve the alveolar ridge at all; it's just making your lips flap. [k'] and [p'] are ejectives; I guess you could say they sound as if you were pronouncing [kʔ] and [pʔ] really fast.

I wonder if this is the correct place to ask this but here I go:
What is this called (technical name)? /ʃ͡ʧ/ Is there a place for it on the IPA chart?

Thank you! :mrgreen:

/ʃ/ is voiceless palato-alveolar sibilant fricative
/ʧ/ is voiceless palato-alveolar sibilant affricate
/ʃ͡ʧ/ is a sequence of these two sounds
