Do you know the meaning of this word?
In phonetics , sibilants are fricative consonants of higher amplitude and pitch , made by directing a stream of air with the tongue towards the teeth. Sibilants have a characteristically intense sound, which accounts for their paralinguistic use in getting one's attention e. In the alveolar hissing sibilants [s] and [z] , the back of the tongue forms a narrow channel is grooved to focus the stream of air more intensely, resulting in a high pitch. A broader category is stridents , which include more fricatives such as uvulars than sibilants. Because all sibilants are also stridents, the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. However, the terms do not mean the same thing. Sibilants are a higher pitched subset of the stridents. Non-sibilant fricatives and affricates produce their characteristic sound directly with the tongue or lips etc. The characteristic intensity of sibilants means that small variations in tongue shape and position are perceivable, with the result that there are many sibilant types that contrast in various languages. Sibilants are louder than their non-sibilant counterparts, and most of their acoustic energy occurs at higher frequencies than non-sibilant fricatives—usually around 8,Hz.

Thanks so much for the links. The truth is I miss being together. When I hear some of the issues going on in Mormon Land, I usually say to myselfв. If your heart longs for children, a family and love- why should you stop yourself holding out for some mystical Mormon man to swoop you off your feet. I am so glad I found this blog. Well the pieces will all fall into place. Whereas I think of him all the time. And some will do that. Please think carefully before marrying with someone works in medical industry. Today was his day off and not one word from him.
