The study by Dromey and Ramig (1998)  examined the effects of manipulating lung volume on phonatory and articulatory behaviors. The authors hypothesized that changes in lung volume would have a greater effect on phonatory variables than lip movements. Interestingly, the authors emphasized in the introduction that the focus of the study was not on aerodynamic regulation of speech and, indeed, no aerodynamic measurements were obtained. However, they suggested that the findings “could help clarify the relationship between activity in the respiratory and articulatory subsystems.” Despite the authors’ disclaimer, their conclusions do focus on aerodynamic regulation, and they clearly interpret their data as “not supporting the regulating system hypothesis.”
