Glottal stop The glottal stop is a type of consonantal sound used in many spoken languages, produced by obstructing airflow in the vocal tract or, more precisely, the glottis. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is . Using IPA, this sound is known as a glottal plosive.
Rapa Nui language The nasal velar consonant is generally written with the Latin letter , but occasionally as . The glottal plosive is typically written with an , or frequently with an apostrophe. A special letter, , is sometimes used to distinguish the Spanish , occurring in introduced terms, from the Rapa Nui .
Q'eqchi' language The Proyecto Lingüístico Francisco Marroquín (PLFM) developed an alternative orthography in the late 1970s, which was influenced by the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). Of note, the PLFM orthography used the number "7" to write the glottal plosive, whereas the apostrophe was used in digraphs and trigraphs to write ejective stops and affricates. This system was later modified by the Academia de Lenguas Mayas de Guatemala (ALMG), which replaced the "7" with the apostrophe. The result, the ALMG orthography, has been the standard, official way to write Q'eqchi', at least in Guatemala, since 1990. In the ALMG orthography, each grapheme (or "letter", including digraphs and trigraphs) is meant to correspond to a particular phoneme. These include separate vowels for long and short sounds, as well as the use of apostrophes (saltillos) for writing ejectives and the glottal stop. The following table matches each of the official ALMG graphemes with their IPA equivalents.
Chroneme In the case of consonants of Japanese, if treated phonemically, a medial consonant might appear to double, thus creating a contrast, for example, between the word "hiki" (meaning 'pull' or 'influence') and "hikki" (meaning 'writing'). In terms of articulation and phonetics, the difference between the two words would be that, in the latter "hikki", the doubled closes the first syllable and is realized in the glottis as glottal plosive stop (with some anticipatory articulation evident in the velum of the mouth, where a is usually made) while starting the next syllable as a articulated and realized as the regular velar sound. In effect, this consonant doubling then adds one mora to the overall speech rhythm and timing. Hence, among other contrasts, the word "hik-ki" is felt to be one mora or beat longer than "hi-ki" by a speaker of Japanese.
Bonda people Two of the most important phonetic features that characterize the Bonda language are the glottal stop, which is a glottal plosive produced by the release of the breath behind the vocal chords, and checked consonants. Those sounds are also featured in Munda languages as a whole. It is the checked consonants "k’" and "p’" that occur in Bonda, found mostly in the final position of native words. The glottal stop, however, may occur initially in native words. In fact, the checked consonants "k’" and "p’" are pre-glottalized. The checked consonants behave differently in Bonda depending on whether they are followed by a vowel or another consonant. It has been found that when "k’" and "p’" are followed by a vowel their glottal stop remains, but they become the sounds "g" and "b". It currently appears as though the Bonda "k"' is being fully replaced by the "g" sound. This may be a product of recent Bonda assimilation into contemporary Indian culture. It is resulting in the loss of one of the original Bonda sounds.
