 The basic distinction drawn between vowels and consonants is based on the observation that in the production of consonants, different organs of speech – usually the tongue and one of the other articulator,​ e.g. such as the teeth or the alveolar ridge – shape the quality of the sound by making contact and altering the shape of the resonating cavities, thereby temporarily hindering or obstructing the passage of the air stream. Vowels are produced without any obstruction in the air stream through the organs of speech, however, their quality is influenced by the shape of the resonating cavity. The basic distinction drawn between vowels and consonants is based on the observation that in the production of consonants, different organs of speech – usually the tongue and one of the other articulator,​ e.g. such as the teeth or the alveolar ridge – shape the quality of the sound by making contact and altering the shape of the resonating cavities, thereby temporarily hindering or obstructing the passage of the air stream.
