Measurement of airflow in speech.

TLDR
It is shown that with careful design a resolution of about 1/4 msec can be achieved and an example is given of how a high-speed pneumotachograph can be used, with a measure of the pressure across a constriction in the vocal tract, to derive the time variation of the flow conductance and resistance at that constriction.
