Sagittal sound

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A sagittal sound or sagittal ( Latin : sagitta "arrow") is a central sound. Another name is median sound. The name comes from the position of the way in which the sound is overcome: this occurs on the sagittal line (the arrow seam) of the skull .

In German, all sounds are sagittal, except for the lateral l-sounds and the vibrating r-sounds.
