The objective of this study was to order over time from ancient times to our time, the prevailing ideas on phonatory and articulatory organs based on functional and comparative anatomy. We reviewed various literature sources on phonatory and articulatory organs and ordered in time, in relation to concepts on the formation and function of these organs comparing those ideas and concepts. Historically it is shown that with the advancement of research and development of new ideas and empirical findings, came to a better understanding of phonatory and articulatory elements.
