/p/

The upper and the lower lips are brought together to obstruct the outflow of air. The air in the mouth pops out suddenly with force. The spelling symbol for /p/ can be found in – stop, lap, pet, apart. It is therefore called a voiceless bilabial plosive. To produce /p/, there is no vibration of the vocal cords.

The /p/ is not pronounced in the words like lamp, psalm, receipt, physics.

More examples on /p/

pin, slip, shape, apple, peach, apply, spill, push, people, plead.

/f/

The production of /f/ involves a partial obstruction caused by the contact of the teeth and the lip resulting in a continuous frictional noise when the airstream passes. There is no vibration as a result of the widening of the glottis during production. It is a voiceless sound and it has different spelling symbols which are listed below:

“f” – flower, floor, fee, fine, fork

“ff” – offer, affair, coffee, office
