BUCCAL SPEECH

n. a type of phonation produced by shaping the buccal (oral) cavity into an air pocket rather generating sound through the vibration of the laryngeal vocal cords. Using the jaws and cheeks as a neoglottis, articulation is managed through the tongue.

BUCCAL SPEECH: "Buccal speech is a form of alaryngeal speech, meaning vocalization using means other than the glottis and vocal cords."
