I just ran across this phonetics site from the University of Iowa:



You can hear the pronunciation of vowels, consonants, and diphthongs and see how they are articulated in American English, German, and Spanish.

I missed this. Very nice! I had fun clicking through all the fricatives and the like. I also had a good time listening to the German sounds. Some I'd not heard before like the uvular one. Thanks, Tinman!

I keep looking at this site. The fricatives in German seem different from any of our sounds to me.

I guess you mean the four (of eleven total) that only occur in German.


Ceci n'est pas un seing.

Well, I listened to all 11, and they sounded different to me from anything in English. However, it must be that the sounds are spoken too slowly, thus making them sound different.
