Larynx Films


First watch the Van den Berg film, Voice Production: The Vibrating Larynx in gorgeous black and white! It is in 4 parts on YouTube. You can stop near the beginning of part 4, when the "collar" is discussed.

You should understand the laryngeal adjustments and their linguistic functioning shown in the clips from the film in this slide.

Also watch this film: Phonation Types Seen by Fibreoptic Laryngoscopy (produced by the Department of Phonetics and Linguistics, School of Oriental and African Studies [SOAS] and The Voice Clinic, Ferens Institute of Otolaryngology)

Clips extracted from the film that are the most important are shown in these slides.
