ApproximantApproximantsGlide
The most common type of palatal consonant is the extremely common approximant, which ranks as among the ten most common sounds in the world's languages.
In articulation and often diachronically, palatal approximants correspond to front vowels, velar approximants to back vowels, and labialized approximants to rounded vowels.

Hard palate

Palatal consonants are consonants articulated with the body of the tongue raised against the hard palate (the middle part of the roof of the mouth).
The interaction between the tongue and the hard palate is essential in the formation of certain speech sounds, notably palatal consonants such as and /t/

Consonants with other primary articulations may be palatalized, that is, accompanied by the raising of the tongue surface towards the hard palate.
They contrast with palatal consonants, which have palatal primary articulation.

Alveolo-palatal consonant

alveolo-palatalAlveolo- palatalAlveopalatal
In phonology, alveolo-palatal, palatoalveolar and palatovelar consonants are commonly grouped as palatals, since these categories rarely contrast with true palatals.
In phonetics, alveolo-palatal (or alveopalatal) consonants, sometimes synonymous with pre-palatal consonants, are intermediate in articulation between the coronal and dorsal consonants, or which have simultaneous alveolar and palatal articulation.

Velar consonant

In phonology, alveolo-palatal, palatoalveolar and palatovelar consonants are commonly grouped as palatals, since these categories rarely contrast with true palatals.
They often become automatically fronted, that is partly or completely palatal before a following front vowel, and retracted, that is partly or completely uvular before back vowels.
