Can one labialize a labial? -Iopq 10:30, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Some analyses of Adyghe postulate the phoneme /pʷʼ/. There are also labialised labials in the Australian language Arrernte. Thefamouseccles 03:33, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
Yes, labial consonants generally involve a vertical lip moovment; secondary labialization a horizontal moovment. These can certainly be combined. Phonemic labialized labials also appear in eg. Kabyle language and various Austronesian languages. --Tropylium (talk) 11:15, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

British or American?[edit]

Is Wikipedia fundamentally British or American? If British, then it needs to be consistently -isation, -ised, -ise, etc. in this article. If American, then -ization, etc. Right now, it's just a mix in this article. (Of course I prefer -ize since it's borrowed from Greek -iz originally and the British misspell it.)

labialized voiceless palato-alveolar sibilant [ʃʷ] doesn't work. -- (talk) 19:31, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
