The physics of small-amplitude oscillation of the vocal folds.
  • I. Titze
  • Physics, Medicine
  • The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
  • 1 April 1988
A theory of vocal fold oscillation is developed on the basis of the body-cover hypothesis. The cover is represented by a distributed surface layer that can propagate a mucosal surface wave.Expand

Vocal tract area functions from magnetic resonance imaging.
There have been considerable research efforts in the area of vocal tract modeling but there is still a small body of information regarding direct 3-D measurements of the vocal tract shape. TheExpand

Voice simulation with a body-cover model of the vocal folds.
  • B. Story, I. Titze
  • Physics, Medicine
  • The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
  • 1 February 1995
A simple, low-dimensional model of the body-cover vocal-fold structure is proposed as a research tool to study both normal and pathological vocal-fold vibration. It maintains the simplicity of aExpand

Nonlinear source-filter coupling in phonation: theory.
  • I. Titze
  • Physics, Medicine
  • The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
  • 9 May 2008
A theory of interaction between the source of sound in phonation and the vocal tract filter is developed. The degree of interaction is controlled by the cross-sectional area of the laryngealExpand

Physiologic and acoustic differences between male and female voices.
  • I. Titze
  • Physics, Medicine
  • The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
  • 1 April 1989
Comparison is drawn between male and female larynges on the basis of overall size, vocal fold membranous length, elastic properties of tissue, and prephonatory glottal shape. Two scale factors areExpand

Populations in the U.S. workforce who rely on voice as a primary tool of trade: a preliminary report.
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics and other sources were consulted about the percentages of the working population that we identified as professional voice users. The largest percentageExpand

  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Journal of speech, language, and hearing research…
  • 1 April 2006
PURPOSE Voice therapy with a semi-occluded vocal tract has a long history. The use of lip trills, tongue trills, bilabial fricatives, humming, and phonation into tubes or straws has been hailed byExpand

Vocal intensity in speakers and singers.
  • I. Titze, J. Sundberg
  • Physics, Medicine
  • The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
  • 1 October 1991
Vocal intensity is studied as a function of fundamental frequency and lung pressure. A combination of analytical and empirical models is used to predict sound pressure levels from glottal waveformsExpand
