    In articulatory phonetics, the place of articulation of a consonant is the point of contact where an obstruction occurs in the vocal tract between an articulatory gesture, an active articulator, and a passive location. Along with the manner of articulation and the phonation, this gives the consonant its distinctive sound. The terminology in this article has been developed to precisely describe all the consonants in all the world's spoken languages.
