Phonation basics GSU

Phonation basics

adduct move toward each other ending at midline
abduct move away from each other starting together at midline
larynx gateway to the respiratory tract
larynx breathing, protect airway, fixing thorax during activies requiring strong abdominal pressure
vocal folds serve as a valve between the speech tract and the respiratory tract
vocal fold vibration is possible because vocal folds are located within fixed larygeal framework
vocal fold vibration is possible because muscles within the larynx (intrinsic laryngeal muscles) facilitate vocal fold abduction and adduction
vocal fold vibration is possible because some of these intrinsic laryngeal muscles cause changes in the elastic properties of the vocal folds, affecting their rate of vibration
vocal fold vibration is possible because an outgoing airstream also affects vocal fold vibration
