PHONOLOGICAL OPPOSITION The term phonological opposition usually refers to the use of contrasting sounds to differentiate words. Speech sounds are produced by systematically modifying the airstream, which is usually egressive. As air moves from the lungs, the first area where modification can take place is the larynx, containing the vocal cords. The vocal cords are either held apart, allowing relatively free airflow into the supraglottal cavities, or they come together under tension, creating the conditions giving rise to glottal vibration or spontaneous voicing.
These variants are optional, and because of this have to be specified in the speaker’s plan for the pronunciation of the word.

The audible frication is due to the escaping air following the release. These observations in classical phonetics result in the abstract (or phonological) classification of stops in English shown below.
