The Production of Speech
These tend not to be recognised as single consonants since they are made up of two phonetic consonants, however, they are typically treated as a single sounds. In this way, there is a short fricative phase, where the articulators separate, though before they fully part ref The third VPM descriptor, voicing, refers to the vibration of the vocal folds which takes place as a result of airstream flowing out of the lungs and through the larynx.
This vibration occurs only when the vocal cords are pulled together quite close together, though not close enough to be clamped completely shut. For example when the vocal cords are tightly clamped together, the plosive sound, glottal stop is articulated. The other use of the vocal cords in the English language is found in the articulation of the glottal fricative [h], which results from the vocal cords being placed close together, but not close enough to vibrate like the voiced sounds; in this case, it is a voiceless sound, despite being produced by bringing the vocal folds together.

- 2.2 Place of articulation;
The IPA chart provided places the voiced consonants on the right hand side of each cell, and the voiceless ones on the left; for example the voiceless bilabial plosive [p] is positioned on the left compared to its corresponding voiced sound [b], which is placed on the right side of the cell. English has five vowels in its alphabet: a, e, i ,o u. The IPA chart for vowels in English can be shown as follows:. However, there are many more ways of pronouncing the vowels than the five sounds given by a,e,i,o,u.
The diagram below represents the range of movement:. The vertical axis of the chart reflects vowel height; vowels pronounced with the tongue raised, leaving a small cavity closed are at the top, while those pronounced with the tongue lowered, leaving a large resonating chamber open are at the top. On the other hand, vowels articulated with the tongue moved to the back of the mouth.
2.1 How Humans Produce Speech
Note that in places where vowels are paired, the ones paired on the right are rounded, which involves the lips being rounded in articulation, while the ones on the left illustrate its unrounded counterpart. The next vowel is lower in the mouth and its vowel height is closed-mid. In articulation there is no contact between the tongue and the palate, the mouth is wide open and the lips are spread. The remaining back vowels involve lip rounding, a key feature that distinguishes them from front vowels that do not.

Deller, J. Potential causes for CAS can include but are not limited to brain damage or underlying genetic conditions. Unlike dysarthria, CAS does not involve muscle weakness.
Children with CAS do still have trouble moving their muscles to make speech sounds, but this problem lies more with motor planning than disruptions in the transmission of signals from brain to muscle. That was a lot of sounds. And just think—every time you speak, your brain and muscles coordinate the required movements at lightning speed! Are you a professor or know someone who is?
