'particular' Patricia

Here's the second part (starting from /k/) of the word particular as pronounced by Patricia Hughes.

First waveform and spectrogram, then the sound clip:

(see Sidney Wood's comment on my blog entry of the 4th of April.)


  1. Here's my impression of some days ago, similar to
    Sidney Wood's: "my best bet is that there is something between the (single) k and the l, and that it is a non-syllabic ɪ or a j, probably labialised."

  2. Thanks Petr. Hearing the k in isolation, I can't really confirm any rounding in the aspiration. And just one final syllable, kl+schwa, no syllabic k. I probably say it like this myself.
