from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The articulation type (also called articulation mode) describes in phonetics the mode of overcoming in the vocal tract (attachment tube) through which a speech sound is formed.

The types of articulation are actually geometric changes in the human vocal tract caused by the organs of articulation .
