Character (arts)
A CHARACTER (sometimes known as a FICTIONAL CHARACTER) is a person or other being in a narrative work of art (such as a novel , play , television series , or film ). The character may be entirely fictional or based on a real-life person, in which case the distinction of a "fictional" versus "real" character may be made. Derived from the ancient Greek word χαρακτήρ, the English word dates from the Restoration , although it became widely used after its appearance in Tom Jones in 1749. From this, the sense of "a part played by an actor " developed. Character, particularly when enacted by an actor in the theatre or cinema , involves "the illusion of being a human person." In literature, characters guide readers through their stories, helping them to understand plots and ponder themes. Since the end of the 18th century, the phrase "in character" has been used to describe an effective impersonation by an actor

In phonetics , LIQUIDS or LIQUID CONSONANTS are a class of consonants consisting of lateral consonants like 'l' together with rhotics like 'r'. CONTENTS * 1 Distribution * 2 Etymology * 3 See also * 4 Notes * 5 References DISTRIBUTIONLiquids as a class often behave in a similar way in the phonotactics of a language: for example, they often have the greatest freedom in occurring in consonant clusters . In many languages, such as Japanese and Korean , there is a single liquid phoneme that has both lateral and rhotic allophones . English has two liquid phonemes, one lateral, /l / and one rhotic, /ɹ /, exemplified in the words Led and Red. Many other European languages have one lateral and one rhotic phoneme. Some, such as Greek , Italian and Serbo-Croatian , have more than two liquid phonemes. All three languages have the set /l/ /ʎ/ /r/, with two laterals and one rhotic.
