Consonant Chart

PAIRED CONSONANTS

Note: "paired" consonants are defined as those consonants in which the only distinguishing factor between the two within the pair is whether or not the vocal chords are vibrating (i.e. vocalized vs. unvocalized).  In modern English, there exist eight such pairs, which are adjacently listed below.

Note: ​Because the Cāngjié input method at the time of this writing as already gone through several iterations, the input sequences for a given character are occasionally different accross operating systems.  Consequently, on Macintosh and iOS operating systems, certain characters require first inputting the 難 keystroke (provided in【brackets】in the chart below) before completing the rest of the sequence—a requirement that does not currently exist on the Windows operating system.

GLOTTAL STOP CONSONANTS

Note: In American English, when the K sound is followed by another consonant, the glottis does not release to allow the passage of air before moving on to the following consonant. This is demonstrable by analyzing the difference between the K in the word “backgammon” versus “Kansas.”  Similarly, the T sound also takes on a glottal stop form when in the final position of a word.
