Phoneme: g

IPA: [k]

g [k]: voiceless velar stop

Word: digiz [tɪkɪz] “it’s crooked”

Description: The voiceless velar stop g [k] is in stem initial position, intervocalically, preceded by a prefix. Similar to the b [p] and d [t] sounds, which are also voiceless, it has a very short voice onset time characteristic of a voiceless unaspirated stop, as shown in the spectrogram.
