Sonorant consonants More sounds My version of the book’s Tables 3.2 and 3.3. All these sounds are voiced except for [q], [X] and [K]. All of these sounds are considered to be sonorants except for the oral stops and the two rows of fricatives. Bilabial Lab- dent Alv Post-alv Retro Palatal Velar Uvular Oral stops q G\ Fricatives X R Nasal stops m n J N N\ Lat. approx. l L L\ Lat. frics.

It is correct that fricatives are more open than stops, and sonorants are more open than fricatives (somewhere in the vocal tract, not necessarily in the oral cavity).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
