- Identify the different parts of the thyroid cartilage, cricoid cartilage, arytenoid cartilages, epiglottis, and hyoid bone.
- Describe the movements of the cricothyroid joints and the cricoarytenoid joints.
- What are the five layers of the vocal folds? Which layers are considered the body, and which are considered the cover?
- Identify the ligaments and membranes of the larynx.
- Know all the intrinsic, extrinsic, and supplementary muscles of the larynx and what they do.

- Discuss the aeromechanical and tissue forces that cause the vocal folds to vibrate.
- What is the primary mechanism for changing fundamental frequency? What are secondary mechanisms for changing fundamental frequency?
- How do the respiratory system, laryngeal apparatus, and pharyngeal-oral apparatus contribute to the sound pressure level of the voice?
- Describe a typical fundamental frequency – sound pressure level profile.
- What is the voice source spectrum and what is its perceptual correlate?
- Describe how the modal, pulse, and loft registers differ from one another.
- Why is the larynx sometimes described as an articulator?
- List some of the major structural and functional changes to the larynx that occur during development and aging.
- How does laryngeal function for speech production change with age?
- List some sex-related differences in laryngeal structure and function.
