Reminder of What I Said in Class about the Data in Question 3 (Final Exam)

ts and tʃ are both affricates: tis an alveolar affricate and  tʃ is postalveolar.  As I said in class, affricates are distinguished by being [+delayed release] and if you check the chapter on distinctive features, you'll see that there is a feature to distinguish [s] and [ʃ], which will also distinguish the two affricates.
