Consonant sound

From Teflpedia

A consonant sound is a speech sound caused by a constriction or closure at some point along the vocal tract.

Contrast vowel sound.

Every syllable is understood to also contain a vowel sound but does not have to include a consonant.

Consonant sounds can be grouped into voiced consonants and unvoiced consonants. They can also be affricates, fricatives, plosives and semi-vowels.

Most English dialects have 24 consonants (counting semivowels /j/ and /w/).
