 LABIODENTAL : these sounds are produced by using the upper teeth and lower lip. And all of then are represented with the symbols [f] and [v].

 DENTAL : these are produced by using the tongue tip behind the upper teeth . and all of them are represented with the symbols [θ], [ð]


 ALVEOLARS: These sounds are produced by using the front part of the tongue on the alveolar ridge, and they are represented with the symbols [t], [d], [s], [z] and [n]

 PALATALS: these sounds are produced by using the tongue and the palate (alveo-palatal), and all of them are represented with the symbols [ʃ] for the ones with the “sh” pronunciation “ch” sound is represented as [ʧ]. Other sounds are s [ʤ], like the word “joke”. Another sound is [j] like “yet”.

 GLOTTALS: These sounds are produced without the active use of the tongue and the mouth and is represented by symbol [h], like the word “hotel”.


MANNER OF ARTICULATION  STOP: this manner of articulation basically is produced by some form of stopping of the air stream.

 FRICATIVES: This manner of articulation is produced by almost blocking the air stream, having the air push through the vary narrow opening.


 AFFRICATIVES: This manner of articulation is produced if we combine stopping of the air stream.

 NASAL: Produced orally by velum raised, preventing airflow from entering the nasal cavity


 LIQUIDS: This manner of articulation is formed by letting the air stream flow around the sides of the tongue.

 GLIDES: This manner of articulation is basically formed with the tongue in motion or “gliding”.
