Constants

Most of the consonants other than b,d,q,g, and c hold no surprises, but some are pronounced differently from their closest equivalents in English. In Fijian, p, t, and k have less aspirations than similar sounds in English. Thus, Fijian p is more like th p in English spin than in pin. The sound written dr, like b, d and q, is pronounced with a nasal in the front of it, re is rolled or trilled as in Spanish. Finally, y has not realy as much glide quality to it as English y.
