Revision as of 18:12, 2 June 2015 by Tim.mills (talk | contribs) (Place is a constriction, not necessarily made by the tongue (cf bilabial, pharyngeal, glottal) - adjusted the text to reflect this. Added "pharyngeal" to main list, and added short list of less common POAs (as mentioned in introductory paragraph).)
