Consonant = a
sound we make that is not a vowel. The breath is somehow blocked on its
way out of the mouth. For example, the sound b is made
when breath flow is stopped with the lips. All the other English
letters which are not vowels are called consonants. These are: b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, m, n, p, q, r,s, t, v, w, x, y, z.
