Basic Phone Matching

Characters Matchers

Query for consonants using the base glyph.

Examples:

| Phonex | Meaning | |--|--| | b | Any consonant with 'b' as the base glyph | | d | Any consonant with 'd' as the base glyph |

Feature Set Matchers

Query using feature names. Features names are placed between braces (i.e., '{', "}').

Examples:

| Phonex | Meaning | |--|--| | {consonant} | Any consonant | | {fricative} | Any fricative |

Multiple feature name may be provided, separated by commas. If a paticular feature is to be excluded from the query it should be prefixed by a minus sign.

Examples:

| Phonex | Meaning | |--|--| | {fricative, voiced} | Voiced fricatives | | {consonant, -stop} | All consonants which are not stops |

Many feature names also have shorthand equivalents. A listing of all feature names supported by phone along with their synomyms can be found here.

Examples:

| Phonex | Meaning | |--|--| | {c} | Any consonant | | {fri} | Any fricative |
