Sample is wrong or unclear[edit]

The sample on the page sounds as /m æ/ and not /m/ in isolation. Perhaps there need to be a note to highlight this or change the sample... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jago25 98 (talkcontribs) 14:04, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

Consonants are traditionally illustrated in audio as [Ca aCa aC] (although these files by Peter Isotalo omit the last one) because it wouldn't at all be illustrative if they were said in isolation, especially for obstruents. Try saying [t] in isolation – do you think that would be helpful? Nardog (talk) 16:17, 2 July 2018 (UTC)
