The voiceless palatal lateral affricate is a type of consonantal sound, used in some spoken languages. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet is ⟨c͡ʎ̥˔⟩ or ⟨c͡ ⟩.

Features

Features of the voiceless alveolar lateral affricate:

Template:Voiceless short

  • It is an oral consonant, which means air is allowed to escape through the mouth only.
  • It is a lateral consonant, which means it is produced by directing the airstream over the sides of the tongue, rather than down the middle.
  • The airstream mechanism is pulmonic, which means it is articulated by pushing air solely with the lungs and diaphragm, as in most sounds.

Occurrence

The sound occurs in Hadza and, as a palatal lateral ejective affricate (see), in Dahalo.

Language Word IPA Meaning Notes
Hadza tlakate [c͡akate] 'rhinoceros' contrasts with ejective and aspirated forms. Although initial contact varies from alveolar to palatal, frication is always palatal.
