voiced plosives

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

- voiced plosives carry more vice in English than in German 

e.g.: god vs Gott

e.g.: ball vs Ball


- voiceless plosives in English are aspired

I p I -> [p^h] <pen> [p^h en ]

I t  I -> [t^h] <ten> [t^h en]

In romance languages voiceless plosives are not aspired!

e.g.: Paris in Eng. and French 


Note: Voiceless plosives are never aspired in Indian English


No aspiration in English when voiceless plosive is preceded by I s I 

speak, stand, sky, stay, spoil 

=> No need to transcripe/ mark the aspiration! -> Just remember it
