Hello all,

I've got the question what exactly 'creaky' vowels are. I've
recently read that they sound somewhat 'harsh' because the
throat is quickly and suddenly closed -- this is what I
actually thought to be e.g. [A?] like. I've always thought
"creaky" would mean with very much rough trembling in the
voice. It's hard to describe when you don't know anything
about the muscles in your throat like me. I recorded a
sound file which can be found at for that
