The voiced palatal click is a click consonant found among the languages of southern Africa. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is ⟨ǂ̬⟩ or ⟨ᶢǂ⟩. (Variations of the latter include ⟨ɡǂ⟩ and ⟨ǂɡ⟩.)
Features of the voiced palatal click:
The airstream mechanism is lingual ingressive (also known as velaric ingressive), which means a pocket of air trapped between two closures is rarefied by a "sucking" action of the tongue, rather than being moved by the glottis or the lungs/diaphragm. The release of the forward closure produces the "click" sound. Voiced and nasal clicks have a simultaneous pulmonic egressive airstream.
