This paper studies the airflow changes of children's Chinese-speaking voiceless consonants. The selected data has the pronunciation of airflow duration, average airflow velocity, airflow volume, and peak airflow velocity. It was found that the airflow velocity of the stop is greater than the affricative and fricative. Fricative has the longest pronunciation duration. The change of the voiceless consonant pronunciation airflow data has a great relationship with the pronunciation place and the pronunciation method. These results can be visually seen through experimental means.
