phonation (fōnā´shən),

n the production of voiced sound by means of vocal cord vibrations.
phonation, speech,
n modification by the vocal folds of the airstream as it leaves the lungs and passes through the larynx, for the purpose of producing the various sounds that are the basis of speech. By opposing each other with different degrees of tension and space, the vocal folds create a slitlike aperture of varying size and contour; and by creating resistance to the stream of air, they set up a sequence of laryngeal sound waves with characteristic pitch and intensity.
