Voiceless Bilabial Plosive (Lower-case P)


Articulator: Lower lip

Point of Articulation: Upper lip

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.

Voice: voiceless – vocal folds are apart and not vibrating.
