I saw this visualisation of the IPA consonant symbols located in the mouth reblogged elsewhere today. I’ve succeeded in locating down the designer and hi-Res versions. Yipee! It seems to be part of an “Introduction to Phonetics” pack.

These are really great visualizations (the flickr link includes both consonants and vowels) and I’d definitely recommend them to anyone teaching or learning the International Phonetic Alphabet.

See also: the IPA vowel chart superimposed on a diagram of the vocal tract and the IPA for English as an elaborate set diagram.

Two scientists walk into a bar:

"I’ll have an H2O."

"I’ll have an H2O, too."

The bartender gives them both water because he is able to distinguish the boundary tones that dictate the grammatical function of homonyms in coda position as well as pragmatic context.
