Why is the diacritic placed on dentals in some cases, and on bilabials in others? I don't think it much matters, but the article implies this is sanctioned by the IPA, which I don't believe it is. kwami 20:47, 2005 Jun 6 (UTC)
- The article is incorrect:p 193 of the Handbook of the IPA has a chart of ExtIPA symbols for disordered speech, and the linguolabial column has all dental/alveolar consonants (t, d, n, r, theta, eth, and l), with the "seagull below" diacritic. Nohat 21:07, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)
- They're used for non-pathological speech as well, in Melanesia. If I remember correctly, there's a dispute over whether linguo-labials are a subcategory of the labials or of the coronals, so that choosing either m or n as the base letter makes a theoretical claim: there's no phonetic difference. But I do think it's weird to mix them up. kwami 23:15, 2005 Jun 6 (UTC)
- Ladefoged classifies the linguolabials as coronal, so I'm changing the template. The <m> needs to be fixed here too; might get to it some day. kwami 23:26, 2005 July 28 (UTC)
Varieties of linguolabial trill
Was hoping to get some clarification on the varieties here. I can do three types of linguolabial trill - Bronx cheer and two that sound like bilabial trills but use the tongue instead of one of the lips (this Youtube video has the linguolabial trill with the upper lip as its second/middle example as part of an attempt to each how to do an alveolar trill). What would the proper nomenclature be for each of these three varieties of trill? -- 18.104.22.168 (talk) 12:49, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
Possible presence in ancient Greek?
Is there any evidence for (or against) the possibility that the combinations πτ, βδ, φθ and μν might have originally represented linguolabial consonants and that they might have later been replaced by spelling pronunciations? Kostaki mou (talk) 04:26, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
- It rather is unlikely, and an extraordinary hypothesis needs extraordinary evidence. And there seems to be no shred of evidence to even suggest the possibility. --JorisvS (talk) 10:32, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
- Mere speculation is not a crime. I am not proclaiming it as fact. I was only asking if there was any such extraordinary evidence. You do not provide any evidence to the contrary (such as providing earlier forms, for example). You are simply shouting me down. Kostaki mou (talk) 19:53, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
- Frankly, I don't know. Who are you kidding? The talk pages are rife with exactly this kind of speculation. Frankly, I find the response to my question quite childish and downright hysterical. I think it's a darn good question (and that's all I am presenting it as). Kostaki mou (talk) 00:07, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
- There seemed to me to be the distinct implication that it was ridiculous for me even to ask the question. Perhaps I misunderstood the statement that "there seems to be no shred of evidence to even suggest the possibility" to mean that it was ridiculous of me even to suggest the possibility (which I don't think it was). Kostaki mou (talk) 01:05, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
- They're coronal. What do you mean by 'swap positions' with labiodentals? Labiodentals are clearly labial. 2606:6000:69C6:9600:8DB:81F4:7EF3:CE59 (talk) 00:40, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
