In phonetics, labiodentals are consonants articulated with the lower lip and the upper teeth. The labiodental consonants identified by the International Phonetic Alphabet are:

IPA Description Example
Language Orthography IPA Meaning
voiceless labiodental plosive
voiced labiodental plosive
p̪͡f voiceless labiodental affricate Tsonga3 N/A [tim̪p̪͡fuβu] hippos
b̪͡v voiced labiodental affricate Tsonga4 N/A [ʃileb̪͡vu] chin
labiodental nasal labiodental nasal English symphony1 [ˈsɪɱfəni] symphony
voiceless labiodental fricative voiceless labiodental fricative English fan [fæn] fan

labiodental approximant labiodental approximant Dutch wang [ʋɑŋ] cheek
ɧ voiceless rounded velarized labiodental fricative Swedish5 sjok [ɧuːk] chunk

Notes:

  1. [ɱ] is an allophone of /m/ that occurs before /v/ and /f/.
  2. The stops (the plosives and the nasal ɱ) are not confirmed to exist as separate phonemes in any language. They are sometimes written as ȹ ȸ (qp and db monograms).
  3. This applies only to the XiNkuna dialect of Tsonga where it is a separate phoneme (with aspirated and unaspirate allophones in free variation. Please note these differ from the German bilabial-labiodental affricate which commences with a bilabial p.
  4. Again, found only in the XiNkuna dialect.
  5. Varies considerably between dialects. In some cases it's similar to the velar fricative [x].
