TABLE OF CONSONANT SOUNDS.

A Consonant is a letter which cannot be sounded, or but imperfectly, with out the aid of a vowel; or, it represents a sound that is modified by some Interruption during its passage through the organs of speech.

Vocal Consonants are those uttered with a slight degree of vocality, but less than that of a vowel. They are formed with a vibration of the vocal cords. Aspirate Consonants are those in which the pure breath alone is heard. They are formed without any vibration of the vocal cords.

Q has the sound of k, and is always followed by u, which, in this position, commonly has the sound of w, but is sometimes silent.

WH is an aspirated w, pronounced as if written hw.

1 Sometimes called Subvocals, or Subtonics.

2 H sounded before a vowel, is an expulsion of the breath after the organs are in a position to sound the vowel
