Abstract

We use language every day without devoting much thought to the process, but articulatory movement - the movement of the lips, tongue, and other organs - is among the subtlest and most adept of any actions performed by human beings. Here, I discuss the mechanisms of speech production, introduce functions for producing sound by controlling the movement of vocal organs, and consider models for achieving speech functions that will enable a computer to mimic a voice that it hears.
