IPA consonant chart quiz/ practice

Here is a chance to practice filling in the IPA consonant chart for English. The symbols in this chart include consonants in standard American English.

This chart is taken from An Introduction to Language by Fromkin, Rodman, and Hyams, 10th edition.You may notice that this chart looks different than other similar charts. For example, some charts don’t include affricates because affricates are just a stop plus a fricative. Additionally, this chart doesn’t include taps or laps. Nevertheless, this is both useful and manageable for linguistics students.

Also, in table cells that include more than one input, the voiceless consonant is on the top while the voiced consonant is on the bottom. Liquids are different though; the top input is a central liquid while the bottom input is a lateral liquid.
