Coronal vs. Dorsal[edit]

It seems to me that a problem with the classification chart on the right of these articulation pages does not show some essential relationships, like that palatals are considered dorsal AND coronal. As such, saying that "They contrast with coronal consonants..." as in the opening of this article is not accurate, since they may overlap with coronal consonants.

ŋ[edit]

They should mention that one other consonant in English is dorsal (velar), namely /ŋ/ as in sing.--Solomonfromfinland (talk) 14:24, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
