Bilabial Percussive

upper and lower lips banged together

Bilabial Percussive


[component-1] Upper Lip
[component-2] Lower Lip

The Bilabial Percussive Generator is made by banging the lips together. Although they don't make much noise on their own, by creating a small vacuum of air in mouth a popping noise can be made (although strictly speaking this would be an inward bilabial plosive!)

Place of Articulation

The following diagram shows where the Bilabial Percussive is made in the mouth.
