This study examines the structural models of Lithuanian plosive consonants in intervocalic, word-initial and word-final positions. The research material consists of 24 sentences read three times by 6 native speakers. The results show that the plosive consonants can be composed of one to three phases, and the most frequent and common models are the closure with a burst release, which might be followed by a different degree of frication.
