Also cool, the "clicks" of the Khoisan language family (which includes
San, a.k.a. Bushman)...

Latin Letter Bilabial Click (like a bubble popping)
Latin Letter Dental Click (tongue on teeth)
Latin Letter Alveolar Click (tongue behind teeth)
Latin Letter Retroflex Click (tongue on roof of mouth)
Latin Letter Lateral Click (like alveolar, air released to side)
