* Take a careful look on those periods marking a Korean phonetic syllable and readers can know why a Korean phonetic syllable is heard shorter than an IPA phonetic one to people who speak an alphabetical language as a mother tongue. The period is more frequent in Korean than in English. A Korean phonetic syllable is generally pronounced during a shoter time than an IPA phonetic syllable is. Because an IPA phonetic consonant is an HMJ phonetic syllable, it is pronounced during a longer time than a Korean phonetic consonant being an HMJ phonetic consonant is. It is very interesting to compare languages one another by HMJ phonetics.
