Sonant

 

in terms of the functional characteristics of sounds, a consonant that functions as a syllabic element (peak of sonority), as in the French interjection pstt and the Russian interjection ks-ks! The concept of sonants plays an important role in Indo-European linguistics in the reconstruction of nonsyllabic consonantal sonantization, which is reflected in different ways in the phonetic structure of morphemes in various Indo-European languages. In terms of the articulatory characteristics of sounds in the narrow sense, sonants are resonant consonants.
