Just don't spit when you do it.

Sounds to me like it ought to be the opposite of "lubricant". I guess not.

The first phonetics word!

affricate, n.

Phonetics.

A close combination of an explosive consonant or ‘stop’ with an immediately following fricative or spirant of corresponding position, as in Ger. pf, z (= ts). Also called affricative.
