affricate: a complex consonant which consists of a stop followed immediately by a fricative at the same or nearly the same place of articulation. E.g. the affricate "ch" [tš] consists of the alveolar stop [t] followed by the palato-alveolar fricative [š]. See manner of articulation; compare obstruent. [Spanish: africado]
