Interdental sound

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In phonetics , interdental describes the place of articulation of a sound. An interdental sound is formed between the teeth (Latin inter dentes ). In German, however, an interdental articulation is as a debate disturbance viewed and lisping called, whereas in English the interdental sounds [⁠ .theta ⁠] and [⁠ ð ⁠] to phoneme (both with "th" written) belong. In most dialects of English, however, they are not pronounced interdentally, but rather apico-dental , which means that a narrow space is formed between the tip of the tongue and the upper incisors.
