A question about English pronunciation
I came across a picture in Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Voice_Onset_Timing_differences_for_English_Tie_and_Die.jpg/ ). At the top of the pic, You can see the IPA for 'die' is /tai/ rather than /dai/. What confuses is i think letter 'd' is a voiced stop, not /t/ an unaspirated voiceless stop all the time.
Since there are not voiced stops in all my mother tongues (Mandarin,Hakka,Teochew), I'm not really good at telling a voiced stop and an unaspirated voiceless one apart...
How do you pronounce letters d,b,g in English? voiced or voiceless?
