Document Summary

Language is highly organized with patterns in the way that various ideas are expressed. Ideas are typically expressed in sentences coherent sequences of words that express the intended meaning of a speaker. Sentences are composed of phrases words morphemes, smallest language until that carry meaning. Morphemes are units that can stand alone and refer to particular objects or ideas or actions, some morphemes get bound onto free morphemes and add information for interpretation (i. e. ed , s ) People can combine and recombine units to produce novel utterances, assembling phonemes to new morphemes or assembling words into new phrases. Air flows quietly out of lungs, through larynx and up through nose and mouth, if airflow is interrupted or altered, this allows human to produce wide range of difference sounds. Vocal folds/cords: w/i larynx, there are 2 flaps of muscular tissue, can be opened and closed to produce buzzing sort of vibration = voicing.
