ⓘ Voiceless labiodental affricate

A voiceless labiodental affricate is a rare affricate consonant that is initiated as a labiodental stop.

In XiNkuna a dialect of Tsongas affricate as it happens, however)

German has a similar sound /PF / in Pfeffer /ˈpfɛfɐ/ pepper and Apfel /ˈapfəl / Apple. Phonotactically, the sound does not occur after long vowels, diphthongs or /L /. It differs from the true affricates sounds that it starts biabiany, but then pulls the lower lip slightly over frication.

Sometimes the sound occurs in English in words where one syllable ends with "R" and the next starts with a "p" as in "useful" or "stepfather."
