    Steps in inhalation: breathe in by increasing your chest capacity. Your diaphragm flattens pulling down the floor of your chest cavity. The air pressure in your lungs is now lower than the pressure outside your body and air rushes into your lungs
  4. how exhalation works 
    Steps of exhalation: you breathe out by decreasing your chest capacity. Your diaphragm is pushed back up. The air pressure in your lungs is now higher than the air pressure outside your body and air rushes out of your lungs

    the process by which sounds produced at the vocal folds are amplified, modified, and enriched by the cavities of the head and chest 
  14. Amplified/ reinforced:

  15. enriched & modified:
    Simultaneously the sounds are enriched and modified by changes in the size, shape and surface tensions of the throat and mouth.
