A particular field of phonetics which studies the physiological components of sound production. When a person produces a sound, they employ their tongue, teeth, hard pallet, soft pallet, glottis, vocal cords, diaphragm, etc. Articulatory phonetics looks specifically at each of these articulators and pays special attention to how each person uses them to produce a specific sound.
