A fricative sound in phonetics, also referred to sometimes as a spirant or sibilant, is a sound produced by holding the mouth in a particular position and releasing air in a continuous uninterrupted stream. Examples of fricatives in English are S, Z, F, and V. The ch in Scottish loch and German nacht are also fricative sounds, though they do not occur in English.
