IELTS Speaking Test Exercises – Pronunciation # Part 3 : Consonants

Posted On //
A consonant is a sound in spoken language that is characterized by a closure or stricture of the vocal tract sufficient to cause audible turbulence. The word consonant comes from Latin and means "sounding with" or "sounding together", the idea being that consonants don't sound on their own, but only occur with a nearby vowel. Consonants may be voiced or unvoiced (voiceless). The 'th' in 'the' is voiced, but in 'breath' is not. (wikipedia)
