Abstract

Estimates of subglottal air pressure and mean volume velocity of air flow were recorded from 30 normal adults during repetition of consonant-vowel syllables. There were no gender differences in subglottal air pressure, and men used significantly higher flows than women did in all speaking tasks. Women had greater laryngeal airway resistances than men did for [i] vowels. Women also had greater resistances during [i] vowels than during [a] vowels, and the men did not. Separate norms are presented for men and women for use in aerodynamic examination of dysphonic subjects.
