Notes[संपादित करें]

  1. Lenition of /b d g/ occurs in regular speech in most Southern Basque dialects. साँचा:Harvcoltxt.
  2. Silent in Southern Basque dialects.
  3. Basque contrasts two consonants that sound similar to the /s/ of Englishː /s̺/, which is apical, and /s̻/, which is laminal. Similarly, /ts̺/ and /ts̻/ are contrasted in the same way.
  4. /x/ is frequently heard due to its prevalence in Gipuzkoan but the realisation of the grapheme j varies depending on dialect and includes [j, ʝ, ɟ, ʒ, ʃ, x, χ]. The last, which resembles Scottish English loch, is typical of Gipuzkoan and the dialect of Gernika.
