Notes

  1. ^ Lithuanian makes contrasts between palatalized and unpalatalized consonants. Palatalized consonants, denoted by a superscript j, [ʲ] , are pronounced with the body of the tongue raised toward the hard palate, in a manner similar to the articulation of the y sound in yes.
  2. ^ a b c d e f g The phonemes /f/, /fʲ/, /ɣ/, /ɣʲ/, /x/, /xʲ/, and /ɔ/ only occur in loanwords.
  3. ^ Sometimes pronounced as [[[voiced glottal fricative#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
    This page is a soft redirect.ɦ]]
    ].
  4. ^ a b [ŋ] and [ŋʲ] are allophones of /n/ and // respectively before velar consonants.
