In specific, the consonants of the central syllable differed in two types of phonetic features--place of articulation (e.g., bilabial
, linguodental etc.) and voice (vibration or not of the vocal folds).
The artist is playing with the auditory value of the letter which has a bilabial
nasal sound that works for two ostensibly extreme poles.

Voice onset time of voiceless bilabial
and velar stops in 3-year-old bilingual children and their age-matched monolingual peers.
Nigeria's most feared head of state, the one that was a dread to Army Generals and the nightmare of those who had a reputation for fearlessness, was overpowered, after a night of romping, by young girls whose only weapons were pointed apples and the bilabial
between their thighs.
In the current work, cortical potentials evoked by /bi/-/pi/ bilabial
stops and alveolar stops /di/-/ti/ were recorded, and the evoked responses were different within the pairs.
Observe the bilabial
point of articulation to monitor the degree of tension in a voice.
The picture was enriched with attention cueing when the speech organs had one of following features: (1) different shapes of lips when producing bilabials
fricatives, labiodental-fricatives, or stops; (2) nasalization; (3) voiced sounds; and (4) the tongue in dental, alveolar, postalveolar, palatal, velar, or uvular positions.
The rapid production of the bilabial
syllable /pa/ may suggest an excitatory effect of alcohol on speech.
