Labiodental ejective fricative

The labiodental ejective fricative is a type of consonantal sound, reported in the Kabardian language. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is ⟨⟩.


Features of the labiodental ejective fricative:

  • Its manner of articulation is fricative, which means it is produced by constricting air flow through a narrow channel at the place of articulation, causing turbulence.
  • Its place of articulation is labiodental, which means it is articulated with the lower lip and the upper teeth.
  • Its phonation is voiceless, which means it is produced without vibrations of the vocal cords.
  • It is an oral consonant, which means air is allowed to escape through the mouth only.
  • The airstream mechanism is ejective (glottalic egressive), which means the air is forced out by pumping the glottis upward.
