Recent theoretical proposals concerning the representation of complex segments, in particular affricates
, lead to predictions regarding the patterning of segmental modification on such segments; in the second part of our investigation, these predictions are tested against the cross-linguistic data on segmental modification on affricates
in the same sample of languages.
The /kn/ of Knecht is pronounced as rapidly as possible--in other words, much like an affricate
Again on the assumption that Grade III meant palatalization, Karlgren concluded that in Grade III they were palatal affricates
but in Grade II they were cerebrals (i.
c] is a voiceless alveolar affricate
= IPA [ts], [n] is a palatal nasal, [r] is an alveolar flap, and [r.
Varo's Guanhua distinguished between aspirated and plain stops and affricates
is felt to be especially musical, thanks to the nasal vowels that abound in it and to the affricates
/ts/ and /pf/ that are absent from it .
Star, Moon, Spirits, and the Affricates
of Angami Naga: A Reply to James A.
Unvoiced fricatives > Voiced fricatives (f) Glides (example: [f] with [v]).
Likewise, the presence of affricates
suggests the presence of fricatives.
Phonetic vs Phonological Lengthening in Affricates
Consonants with a lower error frequency are fricatives (with some omission errors), affricates
The quality of articulation of all affricates
combined was statistically better in the primary school children than in the preschool children, p<0.
There are regularly four primary points of articulation: labial stops, coronal stops, alveopalatal affricates
, and dorsal stops.
realization of the alveolar stops /t/ and /d/ preceded by palatal glide, the 'Bahia's affricates
', in the words of Mota (2002), is a feature associated with the talk of the Northeastern region of Brazil as a whole, but it is more expressive in Sergipe, Alagoas and the interior of Bahia.
Efforts at changing the sounds to alveolar stops and affricates
are not adequate and are ridiculed by many as artificial and not representative of the spoken form.
