For some speakers (not all, as shown by the pronunciation of ''aloqoman'' in the table above), a /q/ located between vowels will be pronounced with voicing, usually as the sound [ʕ], a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voiced_pharyngeal_fricative voiced pharyngeal fricative] (although full voicing may not ever be achieved, as is the case with /s/, so it may be most accurately written as [ħ̬], if the  ̬ is taken to indicate partial voicing). An example is provided below:

For most speakers, /q/ does undergo something similar to word-final aspiration in other consonants. However, instead of aspiration, /q/ is actually '''affricated''' in this instance - that is, it is pronounced much like the phoneme /t͡ʃ/, with a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plosive stop]-like beginning and a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fricative fricative]-like ending.
