So we can add the nasals to our table of plosives:
As we can see, there are three English nasals, one bilabial, one alveolaar, and one velar:
So Icelandic beats English by 10 to 3 on the nasals -
but loses 1 to 6 on the sibilants!
REMEMBER: keep those unvoiced nasals out of English! They sound really strange. Imitate the north Icelandic harðmæli when you speak English - don't unvoice the nasals in front of fortis plosives in words like lamp, mint, think (although Gaelic speakers in the Islands and Highlands of Scotland tend to do this, but you'll need a good Highland accent to carry this off convincingly.)
ICELANDIC ENGLISH 'þing', 'hanga' WITH g 'thing', 'hanger' WITHOUT g 'England', 'dingla' WITHOUT g 'England', 'dingle' WITH g
We won't go further into Icelandic here (this is not a course in Icelandic) but let's look at the English rules for when g is or isn't pronounced after .
MORPHEME - as you may have figured out from reading the above, a MORPHEME is the smallest unit of semantic meaning - the smallest group of phonemes which seems to mean something. Many whole words can be split up into two or more morphemes. So
