The last article [FULL VERSION] is the continuation of how to read and pronounce Arabic characters (2).
Talk about the types of consonants in Arabic before entering level 4.
Light sound and heavy sound
The Arabic consonants can be divided into two categories: "Light sound and heavy sound."
- Light sound: Sounds that sound out of your mouth
- Heavy Sound: A sound that does not put the sound out of the mouth and is pronounced in the mouth
The video is described in this way.
- In the case of the consonant of a heavy sound, the vowel symbol is "a", but the pronunciation becomes "o".
- * The vowel symbol "I" and "U" follow the pronunciation of the vowel symbol as well as the consonant of a light sound.
There is a difference in the pronunciation of the vowel like this.
To tell the truth, the consonants of level 1, 2, and 3 that I had seen so far were all the consonants of a light sound except "ر (Rā)".
And from the next level 4 everything becomes the sound of a heavy sound.
So, from this level 4, let's be aware of the pronunciation of the sound in the mouth, and note the pronunciation of the vowel sign "a"!
So we go to level four.
Level IV: Consonants using uvula
Level 2 is a consonant that uses uvula.There are three types.
※ Uvula (Kousui): It is an alias of "Throat Chin".
【 Name 】 Ho/Khā/خا Pronunciation Kh [Chi] Description: "Kho Khi Khu" [Alphabetical order] 7th [Source] silent, uvula, fricative/chi/
- First of all, the root of the tongue is uvula (throat chin), and the Japanese line is pronounced while the breath is passed in the gap.I can't explain it in words, so let's listen to the actual sound in the video.
- "R" of the Germany Word might also express the pronunciation of this [chi].So if you have a smattering of Germany or Netherlands words, you may have an image.
【 Name 】 Goin/Ghain/غين Pronunciation Gh [ˈ] [Description] "Gho Ghi Ghu" [Alphabetical order] 19th [Citation from] voiced, uvula, fricative/ˈ/
- This is a version of the "خ (Khā)" which added the vibration of the vocal cords to the pronunciation of the previous one.
- The image of the pronunciation is like a dog, "wow" and the state of the growl when you pronounce the line of Japanese.Let's see the actual sound in the video.
【 Name 】 Corf/Qāf/قاف Pronunciation Q [Q] Description: Qo Qi Qu [Alphabetical order] 21st [Citation from] silent, uvula, pop/q/
- After uvula the root of the tongue (throat chin) and dammed breath once, I release the breath at a dash and pronounce the line of Japanese.
- Note that this "ق (Qāf)" and "ك (Kāf)" are similar but different pronunciations.Let the "qāf" be more pronounced in the back of the mouth.
Now that we've finished level 4, we'll go to Level 5 next.
You've finally come to the last level.Cheers is!
However, the consonants at this level are honestly difficult to understand at first, so let's do our best.
