Abstract

Biomechanical models of the oropharynx are beneficial to treatment planning of speech
impediments by providing valuable insight into the speech function such as motor control. In
this paper, we develop a subject-specific model of the oropharynx and investigate its utility in
speech production. Our approach adapts a generic tongue–jaw–hyoid model [Stavness I,
