''Unreleased'' consonnants

So yesterday I heard that some consonants placed at the end of a word are pronounced quietly. What are they? k, l, p, ... ?

The stops. P, t and k.

Only them? Cool.

Tirea Aean:
They each sound ever so slightly different than ' at the end of a word (unless good mic or in person it's more obvious). But blend into the next word as if they are part of it, if the next word starts with a vowel.

txep atun  therefore sounds identical to "txe pa tun"

Tuna txep. Would have an unreleased p at the end, which means you just finish the utteranxe with lips shut and that's the end.

Same concept for t and k.

Irayo :) I wondered if there were more letters than these 4 ones.
