  2. 2. Articulation Organs The articulation organs are used to produce the language sounds, which can be voiced or voiceless, according to the role the vocal cords, also called vocal folds, play or not, when producing a sound.

Then produce, in a high voice, a simple sound: a, c, t, d, etc. If you feel the cords vibrating then the sound is voiced. If you feel the cords at rest, then the sound is voiceless.
