    Arrow vocabulary check

    Check up the sentence, please. Are the words used accordingly?

    It is known that the phoneme F was pronounced by the Oghuz as labiolabial sound (i.e. “v”), rather than labiodental as was phonated by other Turks.

    Thanks.

    are you quite sure that it's not bilabial ?

    Re: vocabulary check

    bi·la·bi·al [bī láybee əl]
    adj
    You are quite right, beascarpetta, thank you so much, I did not know how to traslate it, so I supposed and put it down as labiolabial. Now, I got it in my dictionary: bilabial -- using both lips: used to describe a consonant pronounced by closing or rounding both lips.

    What do you think about the structure and the usage of other words?
