Non-linear Theory

Term Category: Voice Science

The non-linear theory of vocal production is a framework in the study of vocal physiology and acoustics. This theory focuses on understanding the complex, non-linear interactions between the vocal tract, vocal folds, and the surrounding anatomy during speech and singing. It takes into account the intricate dynamics and feedback mechanisms that influence sound production as sound and air energy move in all directions including backwards to the vocal folds.
