My upper lip is a bit on the short side so I sometimes use a labiodental plosive instead of /p/ and /b/ when speaking English, but I have no idea if it has any phonemic status in a language (I can't hear the diff b/n the labial stops). Upper teeth on lower lip. Say a stop. -- Tristan. Find local movie times and trailers on Yahoo! Movies.
