ELOCUTION is the delivery of extemporaneous or written
composition. Its more general divisions are ARTICULA-
TION, SYLLABICATION, ACCENT, EMPHASIS, INFLECTION, MOD-
ULATION, and PAUSES.

SECTION I.-ARTICULATION.

1. ARTICULATION is the distinct utterance of the Oral
Elements, in syllables and words.

2. ORAL ELEMENTS are the sounds that, uttered sepa-
rately or in combination, form syllables and words.

3. ELEMENTS ARE PRODUCED by different positions of

the organs of speech, in connection with the voice and

the breath.

4. THE PRINCIPAL ORGANS OF SPEECH are the lips, teeth,

tongue, and palate.

5. VOICE IS PRODUCED by the action of the breath upon

the larynx.1

6. ELEMENTS ARE DIVIDED into three classes: eighteen
Tonics, fifteen Subtonics, and ten Atonics.

7. TONICS are pure tones produced by the voice, with
but slight use of the organs of speech.

8. SUBTONICS are tones produced by the voice, modified
by the organs of speech.

'The larynx is the upper part of the trachea, or windpipe.
