Definición de phonematic en inglés:

adjetivo

(In prosodic analysis) denoting a segmental element of vowel or consonant features which combines with other elements such as intonation or stress.
Example sentences
  • The phonematic facts are far better explained and more simply set forth if we conceive of a separate phonemic category in which all stressed-vowel oppositions are suspended.
  • The tone rules, which are essential and phonematic to Thai, dictate that the stress cannot and should not be expressed by changing the tone too much.

Origen

1930s: from Greek phōnēma, phōnēmatik- 'relating to a sound'.
