the production of voice through the vibration of the vocal folds of the larynx coupled with airflow directed upward from the lungs.

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.

Patients sometimes cannot produce a good phonation during surgery due to the influence of sedation, atrophy of the paralyzed fold, or sulcus of the healthy vocal cord.
The test measures maximum phonation time, mean air flow rate, subglottic pressure, glottal efficiency, glottal resistance, and vital capacity.
Thus, increased phonation duration, intonation, as well as familiarity may decrease the amount of stuttering.
Together, these data from our primate cousins support the idea that the origins of speech might be found in an evolutionary combination of "traditional" phonation (sounds produced by the vocal cords, in the larynx) with rapid, learned movements of the vocal tract, which have stronger similarities to primate facial signals than to their innate calls.
