On account of their important function in this operation the false vocal cords are called the 'breath-bands.'
The false vocal cords are bands of ligament, and take no part in the production of sound.
Mr. Lunn feels sure that the true vocal cords are not involved in falsetto, that voice being produced by the false vocal cords.
Between the true and false vocal cords is a depression on each side, which is termed the ventricle of the larynx (Fig. 55, D).
Above them are other folds of mucous membrane called the false vocal cords, which take no part in the production of the voice.
This inflation of the ventricles brings their upper margins, formed by the false vocal cords, into contact.
The upper ligaments are sometimes 18 called the false vocal cords, but are more properly termed ventricular bands.
