- Frequency : For a periodic (i.e., repeating) phenomena, the number of repetitions per unit of time, usually one second; measured in Hertz
- Amplitude : Add brief definition or description
- Hearing : Add brief definition or description
- Ear : The organ that detects sound.
- Human voice : Add brief definition or description
- Vocal cords : Mucous membranes over the larynx that contribute to the production of sound in mammals.
- Phonology : In linguistics, the study of the system used to represent language, including sounds in spoken language and hand movements in sign language.
- Psycholinguistics : Study of the psychological and neurobiological factors that enable humans to acquire, use, comprehend and produce language.
- Spoken language : An example of language produced using some of the articulatory organs, e.g. the mouth, vocal folds or lungs, or intended for production by these organs; alternatively, the entire act of communicating verbally - what people mean or intend, the words they use, their accent, intonation and so on.
- Phonetics : Study of speech sounds and their perception, production, combination, and description.
- Voicing (linguistics) : Either the physical production of vibration by the vocal folds as part of articulation, or the potential phonological distinction this allows, i.e. the distinct difference between units such as [b] and [p] in many languages.
- Consonant : Unit of language, defined in phonetics as a speech sound that involves full or partial 'closure' of the mouth, and in phonology as a segment that cannot occupy the nucleus or 'peak' of a syllable.
- Sonorant : Add brief definition or description
- Vowel : Speech sound with relatively unhindered airflow; different vowels are articulated mainly through tongue movements at the palatal and velar regions of the mouth, and are usually voiced (i.e. involve vocal fold movement).
- Music : The art of structuring time by combining sound and silence into rhythm, harmonies and melodies.
- Pitch (music) : Perceived frequency of a sound or musical tone.
- Voice (music) : The full range of sound audible to most humans, up to approximately 20 KHz, which can be produced by a human voice trained in music (i.e., singing)
- Wave : Add brief definition or description
- Gas : One of the major states of matter (i.e., gas, liquid, solid and plasma).
- Liquid : One of the major states of matter (i.e., gas, liquid, solid and plasma).
- Solid : The state in which matter maintains a fixed volume and shape (is neither a gas nor a liquid).
- Hertz : The international (SI) unit of frequency, with units of inverse seconds, commonly called cycles per seocond.
- Communication : The set of interactive processes that create shared meaning.
- Hearing impairment : Add brief definition or description
- Language : A type of communication system; this term is used in linguistics, computer science and other fields to refer to different systems, including 'natural language' in humans, programming languages run on computers, and so on.
- Linguistics : The scientific study of language.
