Of all the animals capable of voicing recognisable noises and signals, only man is capable of articulation and communication in words. Too often this ability to vocalise is taken for granted and the vulnerability of the vocal mechanism is ignored until it is spoiled by misuse. It is hoped that the discussion of the structure and function of the larynx which follows will increase the understanding of teachers, therapists and students and will encourage exploration of the options they have in keeping the mechanism healthy.
