|Voiceless Velar Stop (Lower-case K)|
Articulator: back of the tongue
Point of Articulation: velum
Manner of Articulation:
(Oral) Stop – A complete closure is made between the articulator and the point of articulation. Since the oral passage is blocked off, air pressure builds up in the mouth. When the closure is stopped, an abrupt release occurs.
