Recent studies have shown that the supraglottic structures could alter the aeroacoustics output of the larynx [1–2]. The fist supraglottic tissue above the true vocal folds (TVF) is the false vocal folds (FVF) or ventricular folds. This non-oscillatory part of the human larynx shows a wide range of adductions during the normal phonation. Most previous studies, however, have focused on the effect of normal configuration of the FVFs based on mean values reported for this laryngeal structure. Therefore, the effect of different levels of FVF adduction on oscillation of the TVFs remained uninvestigated.
