What are some excellent pieces for speech choir?Answer:Speech
is the vocalization form of human communication. It is based upon the syntacticcombination of lexicals and names that are drawn from very large (usually >10,000 differentwords) vocabularies. Each spoken word is created out of the phonetic combination of a limitedset of vowel and consonant speech sound units. These vocabularies, the syntax which structuresthem, and their set of speech sound units, differ creating the existence of many thousands of different types of mutually unintelligible human languages. Human speakers are often polyglotable to communicate in two or more of them. The vocal abilities that enable humans to producespeech also provide humans with the ability to sing.A gestural form of human communication exists for the deaf in the form of sign language.Speech in some cultures has become the basis of a written language, often one that differs in itsvocabulary, syntax and phonetics from its associated spoken one, a situation called diglossia.Speech in addition to its use in communication, it is suggested by some psychologists such asVygotsky is internally used by mental processes to enhance and organize cognition in the formof an interior monologue.Speech is researched in terms of the speech production and speech perception of the sounds usedin spoken language. Several academic disciplines study these including acoustics, psychology,speech pathology, linguistics, cognitive science, communication studies, otolaryngology andcomputer science. Another area of research is how the human brain in its different areas such asthe Broca's area and Wernicke's area underlies speech.It is controversial how far human speech is unique in that other animals also communicate withvocalizations. While none in the wild uses syntax nor compatibly large vocabularies, researchupon the nonverbal abilities of language trained apes such as Washoe and Kanzi raises the possibility that they might have these capabilities.The origins of speech are unknown and subject to much debate and speculation.

Speech choir production
In linguistics (articulatory phonetics),
manner of articulation
describes how the tongue, lips, jaw, and other speech organs are involved in making a sound make contact. Often the concept isonly used for the production of consonants. For any place of articulation, there may be severalmanners, and therefore several homorganic consonants. Normal human speech is produced with pulmonary pressure provided by the lungs which creates phonation in the glottis in the larynx that then is modified by the vocal tract into different vowelsand consonants. However humans can pronounce words without the use of the lungs and glottisin alaryngeal speech of which there are three types: esophageal speech, pharyngeal speech and buccal speech (better known as Donald Duck talk).
