HMJ phonetics has ‘absolute’ definitions to be applied to all human languages in the world. No consonant can ever be pronounced by itself without a vowel by them. In spite of the fact, an IPA phonetic English consonant can be pronounced by itself without a vowel on purpose. So it is not a consonant but a ‘syllable’ in HMJ phonetics. On the other hand, a Korean consonant can’t ever be pronounced by itself without a vowel. So it is a ‘consonant’ in HMJ phonetics.
Otherwise, modern physics says that a scene which one sees in a higher dimensional world is totally different from that which one does in a lower dimensional one. By the way, the ‘unified field’ is definitely the highest dimensional world. So it can be analyzed that an IPA phonetic English consonant is a syllable in the ‘unified field’ which is a higher dimensional world than our ordinary world. (Be that as it may, these sayings are not to belittle IPA phonetics or the world using alphabetical languages or this world. Because they have contributed a lot to people. Even this HMJ phonetics coudn’t have come without them. So please don’t misapprehend!)
