Any spoken sound that is characterised by an articulation with a closure or narrowing of the vocal tract, resulting in a complete or partial blocking of the flow of air, such as the sounds t, g, f, or z.

Most English accents have 24 consonant sounds, which are represented by 21 letters of the English alphabet (sometimes in combination, e.g., ch and th).
