The Anatomy of Speech



To achieve an understanding of human speech production, first, one should study the anatomy of the vocal system (the speech signal production machinery). It is fair to say that one should grasp the process of speech production, before attempting to model a system that would understand it. Once this mechanism is better understood, we may try to create systems that recognize its distinguishing characteristics and nuances, thus recognizing the individual speaker.
