Talk:IPA phoneme /ʃ/
Hey everyone, I came here to find out a thing about the /ʃ/ phoneme that wasn't included on the page, but I also found an error in the section labeled Spanish.
> The missing information I was looking for was the site of articulation for /ʃ/. I believe it is a voiceless -dental- fricative, but the article inconveniently lacked that one descriptor for the /ʃ/ phoneme.
> As for Spanish, I would like to point out that the [ʃ] sound is made in Argentinian Spanish, in words containing Y (as consonant; not as in y, hay, doy, muy, etc) and LL. As examples, "ayer," "ya," and "llamar" are pronounced [a'ʃer], [ʃa], and [ʃa'mar] respectively. It may be true that Spanish speakers may not distinguish [ʃ] as its own particular
sound phoneme, thinking it's a funny version of /j/ or /ʒ/, but the sound certainly exists. This unsigned comment was made by 18.104.22.168 15:19, 2 March 2019
