articulation  -The act or manner of producing a speech sound using the vocal tract.  chord  - A combination of three or more musical notes with different pitches played simultaneously.  coarticulation  - The phenomenon in speech whereby attributes of successive speech units overlap  in articulatory or acoustic patterns.  Formant -  A resonance of the vocal tract. They are specified by their center frequency and are  denoted by integers that increase with relative frequency.  Melody -  An arrangement of notes or chords in succession.  Octave -  The interval between two sound frequencies having a ratio of 2:1.  Pitch -  The psychological aspect of sound related mainly to the fundamental frequency.  spectrogram  - A pattern for sound analysis that provides a three-dimensional display plotting time  on the horizontal axis, frequency on the vertical axis, and intensity on a color or gray scale tempo -  The perceived speed of the presentation of sounds.  tone chroma  - A sound quality shared by tones that have the same octave interval.  tone height -  A sound quality whereby a sound is heard to be of higher or lower pitch. Tone height is  monotonically related to frequency.  vocal tract -  The airway above the larynx used for production of speech. Includes the oral tract and  nasal tract.  1. What  does the musical helix illustrate?  The musical helix illustrates the two characteristics of musical pitch: tone height and tone  chroma. 2. What  is tone height? Tone height is a sound quality whereby a sound is heard to be of higher or lower pitch. Tone  height is monotonically related to frequency.  3. What  is the difference between consonant or dissonant chords?
