I have noticed that I have the ability, like all, to force air out of the little places behind the tonsils, and I was curious if this is an actual articulation? I don't know what part of the mouth, or vocal tract, this would be.
I notice that the more I pronounce it, the more it kind of sounds like a pharyngeal fricative. I am not quite sure which part of the mouth exactly is the pharynx, I just know I can pronounce pharyngeal sounds. I guess either it is a pharyngeal fricative and I am not used to thinking of it differently, or perhaps an allophone of the pharyngeal fricative?
My mouth anatomy is a little "lacking," but I think the area I am speaking of is between the vellum and the posterior faucial pillar.
