Velar Trill?


Recommended Posts

One afternoon, as all linguists do, I was sitting on my couch making weird noises, trying to figure out the non-English IPA symbols. I stumbled on the shaded parts of the graph, supposedly outlining impossible articulations. A velar trill is supposed to be impossible. Yet I'm fairly sure I managed it. It just involves nearly unhinging my lower jaw and make my tongue do some crazy backwards bending-folding thing.


FYI, whatever I discovered, it's the Chewbacca noise.
