Creaky-voiced glottal approximant
Template:Infobox IPA The creaky-voiced glottal approximant is a consonant sound in some languages. In the IPA, it is transcribed as Template:Angbr IPA or Template:Angbr IPA. It involves tension in the glottis and diminution of airflow, compared to surrounding vowels, but not full occlusion. It is an intervocalic allophone of a glottal stop in many languages. It is reported to be contrastive only in Gimi in which it is phonologically the voiced equivalent of the glottal stop Template:IPA.
