It might be expected that languages in which both rounding and tongue-root advancing play independent roles are either rare or nonexistent. The acoustic consequences of both of these articulatory activities are similar (at least as far as the effect on Fi is concerned), although they are not identical.

If the values of ΔΡ and ws give rise to a point above the curve labeled "slack," then vocal-cord vibration is initiated when the vocal-cord stiffness is small. Likewise the curve labeled "stiff" represents the boundary of vocal-cord oscillation for relatively stiff vocal cords. Below these lines, the vocal cords remain in a static position with no oscillations. Points A, B, and C represent glottal widths that lie within regions of "normal" glottal vibration, spread glottis and constricted glottis for nonobstruents, for which ΔΡ = PSUb· The portion of the chart corresponding to obstruent configurations is well below the line AP/PSUb = 1.
