I was always aware that the /t/ sound, even in the word utter, was a stop (along with its counterpart /d/). More specifically, a voiceless alveolar stop consonant. Falcon 21:57, 30 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Add tips on the simple observation of articulation?
I was trying to figure out the vowel chart. Observationally. Fingers in mouth, raising tongue to see where it hit, etc. I found external resources like Observing your articulators with suggestions on how to proceed. But not much on wikipedia itself. Perhaps add a section on practical observational anatomical phonetics? So it isn't all just odd characters and vocabulary, but instead something tangible, accessible. Something you could show to a six year old. 22.214.171.124 04:37, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

I have no problem with keeping it here or moving it back. I moved it because its my understanding that the general term is 'manners' and not 'manner' - ie. each phoneme has a manner by which its articulated, and together they form a system of 'manners' - objectively called a speaker's 'phonology.' You are right about the issue of plurals, but that applies largely to object articles rather than concept articles. This being a concept article we generally use the more abstract term. -Stevertigo (w | t | e) 18:08, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
Support move. a) WP:Article titles, as explained. b) the article talks about what the manner of articulation of a consonant is (for this it needs to deal with the various manners there are), i.e. a parameter. Thus the singular is, aside from more common, also more appropriate. I don't see what this being a concept article has to do with needing the plural; there is a concept of 'manner of articulation', like c) we, analogously, have Place of articulation. --JorisvS (talk) 18:47, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
Support move. Like Cnilep I've done a survey of books ranging from introductory linguistics textbooks to specialist works on phonology and "Manner", not "Manners", is the common name in the field. WP:Article titles and WP:UCN both apply here. Ergative rlt (talk) 18:54, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
Support move. Per nom. I don't know if I've ever even seen the phrase manners of articulation. — Æµ§œš¹[aɪm ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɛ̃ɾ̃ˡi] 01:15, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Support move back to singular. Phoneticians generally speak of "the manner of articulation", in the singular, of a sound. +Angr 10:22, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
