The pharynx is a vital part of the human throat, located behind the mouth and nasal cavity. It serves as a passageway for both air and food. The pharynx is involved in the process of swallowing, directing food to the esophagus and preventing it from entering the airway. Additionally, it plays a crucial role in vocal production during speech and singing. The shape and position of the pharynx contribute to the resonance and timbre of our voices.
