Phonetics is a discipline of linguistics concerned with the generation and classification of speech sounds around the world.

Phonetics is important to English learners not only because it gives meaning to words and spelling, but also because it allows them to distinguish different sounds in spoken English.

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.

There are 24 consonant sounds in most English accents, conveyed by 21 letters of the regular English alphabet (sometimes in combination, e.g., ch and th).

English comes from the Latin language, which was derived from the Greek language. The English alphabet is made up of 26 letters: a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

  • Consonants: k, x, q
  • Consonants: g, f, v
