A sound property referring to the kind of articulatory process used in a sound's production. The distinction between vowel and consonant is usually made in terms of manner of articulation. Within consonants, several articulatory types are recognized based on the type of closure made by the vocal organs. Within vowels, classification is based on the number of auditory qualities distinguishable in the sound, the position of the soft palate, and the type of lip position. [Crystal 1997: 232]
