language  language disorder  speech disorder  Speech  Voice disorders  Voice 

Voice (or vocalization) is generated by airflow from the lungs as the vocal folds in the larynx are brought close together. Speech is the precisely coordinated muscle actions of the tongue, lips, jaw, and vocal tract (or speech articulators), which together shape air flow to produce the sounds of one's language.Language is a shared system for communicating and exchanging knowledge, feelings, thoughts, and beliefs.
