Consonant Sounds of Behchokǫ̀ Rae-Edzo

The consonant sounds in a language are divided into two groups. The largest group, called obstruents, are comprised of the stops, fricatives and affricates. The Dene languages all have a very rich set of obstruent sounds.  

The second group is called sonorants. The sonorants are a smaller group consisting mainly of the nasals and the y and w sounds.

These are the sounds listed in the chart on this page, and on the sidebar.  Click on the sound in the sidebar that you want to hear.
