Symbol <Z>

When sounds within or at the end of a lexical unit are lengthened, we use <Z> (with Z standing for the German word 'Zögerung'). You can find it for prefinal lenghtening, with plosives that have a longer closure phase and in the event of an aspiration phase that is stronger or longer than normally. This label is directly added to the letter representing the sound affected.
