WHAT DOES LABIALIZATION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Labialization

Labialization is a secondary articulatory feature of sounds in some languages. Labialized sounds involve the lips while the remainder of the oral cavity produces another sound. The term is normally restricted to consonants. When vowels involve the lips, they are called rounded. The most common labialized consonants are labialized velars. Most other labialized sounds also have simultaneous velarization, and the process may then be more precisely called labio-velarization. Labialization may also refer to a type of assimilation process.

Definition of labialization in the English dictionary

The definition of labialization in the dictionary is (phonetics) the act or process of pronouncing with articulation involving rounded lips, such as for ((k)) before a close back vowel ((uː)) as in English cool.
