aerodynamic theory

aerodynamic theory

generally accepted theory that the vibration of the vocal folds in phonation is produced by the flow of exhaled air past lightly approximated vocal folds; opposed to the now untenable concept that vocal fold motion in phonation results from contraction of the intrinsic muscles of the larynx at the frequency of the vocal fold vibration.

This has encouraged the belief that the Germans were ahead of the rest of the world in aerodynamic theory and that the adoption of swept-back wings in the next generation of fast jets was due to German theoretical advances being taken over by their former enemies once they had won the war and were able to pillage German laboratories.
