When present, 32.5% patients had foveae present at the level of vibrating line, 31.1% had vibrating line posterior to foveae palatinae ,while only 8.6% presented with vibrating line anterior to fovea palatinae. Within the limitations of the present study, it was concluded that foveae palatinae are not a reliable anatomical landmark for determining the position of the vibrating line.
Most of the Demonstrators and Faculty members 36 (85.72%) were teaching a combination of phonation with other methods, such as the fovea palatinae as compared to 6 (14.29%) using phonation method for determining the location of the vibrating line (Table-1).
