|Labial Assimilation||A type of consonant assimilation (or consonant harmony) in which a non-labial sound is replaced with a labial sound that is similar to another labial sound in the word. Labial refers to the lips; labial sounds are produced by moving the lips while manipulating airflow.
For example, the word bed has the consonants /b/ (labial) and /d/ (non-labial). Labial assimilation occurs when the /d/ is changed to a labial sound to assimilate, or sound like, the labial /b/. The result would sound like /beb/, with the second /b/ (labial) replacing the /d/ (non-labial).See also Assimilation, Phonological Processes, Labial Consonant.
