I think I understand the ejective consonants, but even after listening to the Wikipedia audio clips, I am not sure I would be able to distinguish them from the corresponding "regular" consonant, like
p'. Would be helpful to have an array of audio clips to compare and contrast them. Reading a bit more on ejective consonants still leaves me in the same position. Maybe a secondary resource in which a person speaks a language with ejective consonants, so I can learn better to distinguish the. A quick YouTube search on Georgian yields this, but I don't hear any ejective consonants lol. Maybe it's because I am just starting. This individual speaking mayan I can hear the
ch' ejective consonant sound I think, but that's it so far.
Related note: Same with the labialized consonants, I imagine for
kʷ just creating a "k" sound with rounded lips, but I can make that same sort of "deeper" sound in other ways anatomically (like just lowering my voice), so I'm not sure I'm doing it right. If the audio clips happened to include distinctions between aspirated and breathy voiced consonants, too, that would be nice, but I think I understand those. Also, if it included clips of contrasting normal/dental, normal/apical, normal/velar, normal/palatal, etc. that would be useful but not necessary for this question. Basically, where the best places are to find audio clips in this area other than Wikipedia.
