Abstract The phonetic manifestation of distinctive plosive types and click accompaniments in Xhosa was investigated with measurements of voice onset time (VOT), closure duration, voicing during closure, and burst amplitude. There is a high degree of interspeaker as well as token-to-token variability in the voiceless unaspirated plosives and clicks concerning their pronunciation with or without audible ejection. The plosives are much more frequently ejective than the corresponding clicks. If… Expand
