Plosive consonant - definition and characteristics
Plosive - is a consonant produced when one articulator is moved against another, or two articulators are moved against each other, so as to form a stricture that allows no air to escape from the vocal tract. English has six plosive consonants: p, t, k, b, d, g.
The plosives have different places of articulation:
P, b - bilabial
T, d - alveolar
K, g - velar.
P, t, k are fortis (voiceless)
