Speech production is a skill of considerable intricacy whereby prosodically marked (meaningless) language forms are implemented as vocal tract activity that generates an audible acoustic signal. Speech production contrasts in scope with language production, which encompasses the whole set of processes, starting with a plan to produce a meaningful message and ending with an acoustic speech signal. It contrasts in level of analysis with speech motor control, the study of which focuses on neural control systems and muscle activations.
