Pronunciation GB: ˈfrɪkətɪv, GA: ˈfrɪkət̬ɪv

The name of a manner of articulation. Fricative sounds are produced with a narrow space between the active and passive articulators and an airflow strong enough to cause air turbulence when it travels through this constriction. Fricatives may be median (examples f s ʒ ɣ) or lateral (example ɬ).
