Voiced sounds require the vocal folds to be close enough together to allow them to vibrate. Therefore aspirates, which are produced with the vocal folds parted, are naturally voiceless. Furthermore, voiced sounds are unaspirated, for the same reason. This is the reason why voiced unaspirated sounds are rarely found in any language. 13 shows the closed and release phases of three kinds of phonological stop sounds: voiced, voiceless unaspirated and voiceless aspirated stops. 1 This is because although it contains stops and affricates that share the same place and manner of articulation, these are all phonemically voiceless.

Most speech sounds are oral sounds, and may be assumed such unless otherwise specified. In addition, as most pronounced sounds are oral – nasals are the exception – the velum is raised flat against the pharynx most of the time. However, the velum is in this position during breathing. 3 Processes of speech production Generally speaking, speech sounds are produced as air is exhaled from the lungs through the vocal folds and the vocal tract. This process can be divided into three main stages. First, the supply of air needed for sound formation; second, modulation of that air supply; and finally, transformation of the regulated air.

The second is a complete obstruction and then reopening of the air passage to produce a momentary noise. Fricatives are of the former kind, and stops are of the latter kind. Both of these sounds are accompanied by noise, but the duration of that noise is different for each. DID YOU KNOW . .? Sonorants and obstruents vs. consonants and vowels Sonorants and obstruents are distinguished on the basis of whether or not they are accompanied by noise, whereas consonants and vowels are distinguished on the basis of whether or not the central part of the oral cavity is obstructed.
