In phonetics, velaric ingressive is an airstream mechanism where a sound is produced by a closure of the velum (or soft palate) and other place of articulation in the front of the oral cavity (such as the alveolar ridge or the lips), and then sucking air in while simultaneously releasing both closures.
Velaric ingressive sounds are more commonly known as clicks.
