How can we tell apart different sonorant consonants- your [n]s and [m]s, [l]s and [ɹ]s? What do their sound waves look like? In this week’s episode, we take a look at the acoustics of nasal and approximant consonants: how opening up your nose influences your speech, how similar some consonants are to being vowels, and why it can be hard for some people to tell apart the English l and r.
I tried dressing up differently for this episode, too, which was pretty fun. Looking forward to hearing what people have to say! ^_^
New Ling Space! Whoops I’ve been sporadic in my reblogs lately. Hope I can catch up sometime ^^;
