A plosive, also known as a stop consonant, is a type of consonant sound produced by stopping the airflow in the vocal tract and then releasing it suddenly. Examples of plosives in English include /p/, /b/, /t/, /d/, /k/, and /g/. Teaching plosives involves helping learners understand the articulatory process and practice the sounds in isolation and within words. Phonetic exercises, minimal pair drills, and pronunciation practice are effective methods for improving the production and recognition of plosives.
