More Information

TKD glosses QIch as "speech (vocal sounds)." The notation "(vocal sounds)" is intended to denote that "speech" here means the phenomenon of speech as opposed to an address or oration – that's SoQ. So QIch doesn't refer to individual speech sounds or speech sounds collectively. An individual speech sound is QIch wab and speech sounds collectively are QIch wabmey.

"Pronunciation" could be QIch wab Ho'DoS, more literally (but awkwardly) "speech-sound manner, speech-sound technique."

(boQwI' app terms, 2018)
