Some aspects of the IPA chart are not intuitive to me. I tend to think of "place of articulation" as "where a sound is produced" and "manner of articulation" as "how a sound is produced".
Is this a useful understanding or does it reduce the meaning of the rows and columns in the IPA chart?
Also: Is there an image that combines place and/or manner with an x-ray view of the speech organs? That'd help me better understand those terms. The examples I find online don't correspond exactly to the IPA chart so they're often more distracting than helpful. For example, the image below only has 9 places of articulation mentioned, whereas the IPA has 11.
It'd be awesome if there was an image or images like this that included both place and manner, but maybe it'd be too complicated. Any input/advice on this would be appreciated!
