Labial-palatal consonant

In phonetics, the labialised palatal approximant is a consonant with two constrictions in the vocal tract: with the tongue on the palate, and "rounded" at the lips.

The labialised palatal approximant identified by the International Phonetic Alphabet is:

This sound is not a doubly articulated "labial-palatal", but rather a rounded palatal, meaning that it has secondary labial articulation. This is consistent with it being the semivowel equivalent of IPA| [y] , which is also has palatal articulation with secondary labialization.

The closest thing known to a doubly articulated labial-palatal consonant are the labial-postalveolar consonants of the Yélî Dnye language.
