Extensive acoustical measurements were made to describe variations in the glottal tones produced by a patient who had undergone a complete mandibulectomy and surgical resection of the neck musculature, leaving the larynx functional, but exposed. The data indicate the patient was able to vary fundamental frequency and intensity within grossly normal limits. Changes in the glottal spectrum were similar to values predicted from laryngeal analog data.
