Sample text

Thus, the consonant at the beginning of the word sing is a (1) voiceless, (2) alveolar, (3) central, (4) oral, (5) fricative; and the consonant at the end of sing is a (1) voiced, (2) velar, (3) central, (4) nasal, (5) stop. On most occasions, it is not necessary to state all five points. Unless a specific statement to the contrary is made, consonants are usually presumed to be central, not lateral, and oral rather than nasal. Consequently, points (3) and (4) may often be left out, so the consonant at the beginning of sing is simply called a voiceless alveolar fricative.

The spelling system of the English language does not distinguish between [ T ] and [ D ]. They are both written with the letters th in pairs such as thigh, thy. The symbol for the voiceless palato-alveolar (post-alveolar) fricative [ S ] (long s) in shy, sheep, rash is both an ascender and a descender. It is like a long, straightened s going both above and below the line of writing. The corresponding voiced symbol [ Z ] is like a long z descending below the line.
