Playing with Liquids - Use Your Manners





As a matter of fact, this may be one of the best mugs I have ever seen for a phonetician (or should I say...as a manner of articulation).

Okay, you're going to have to explain this one to me.

Okay, never mind; I stopped being lazy and looked it up.

I want to thank for your mail :) I will check Linguist List and I will look closely to your notes... who knows maybe I will find funny cartoon or quotation that I could use in my paper :)

Rimpy - I would have responded sooner but I didn't get a notification about either of your comments until this morning.

For those who don't feel like looking it up - In phonetics the manner of articulation describes how (and which) speech organs (tongue, lips, nose, etc.) work together to produce particular sounds. The l-sound and r-sound fall into the category of manners called liquids.
