This study aims at uncovering such consonantal features as nasalized consonants, aspirated consonants and labialized consonants which are phonemic in some dialects of Igbo.
Ikekeonwu identifies aspirated consonants, nasalized consonants and labialized consonants as being distinctive in Inland West Igbo and Inland East Igbo dialect clusters; Waawa/Northern Igbo dialect cluster has labialized consonants in addition to other plain consonants, while Riverain dialect cluster has nasalized consonants in addition to other plain consonants.
Examples (3) and (4) illustrate vividly that nasalized consonants are phonemic in Osuowere and Umuchu dialects of Igbo but not in Standard Igbo.
