Articulation
The process of joining two elements together
Articulatory system
The system of mobile and immobile articulators brought into contact for the purpose of shaping speech sounds
Source Filter Theory of Vowel Production
Acoustic speech output results from a source of sound energy modulated by a transfer function determined by the shape of the supralaryngeal vocal tract
Mobile articulators
Tongue, Lower jaw, Velum (also lips, cheeks, fauces and pharynx, larynx and hyoid bone)
Immobile articulators
Alveolar ridge, upper jaw, hard palate, teeth
Largest bone of the face
