Datapoint Palenquero/ð - voiced dental fricative

The fricative [ð] behaves essentially as in Spanish. Its friction is often very light, so light in fact that it becomes subject to loss.

[ð] often alternates freely with [r] and [l], but such alternations are in many cases word-specific, i.e. in some words only some alternations are made. For instance, adió 'goodbye' is often pronunced arió, but never *alió.


Exists only as a minor allophone
