The larynx is a tubular organ, located (roughly) in the middle of the
neck.

Its main functions are:

- Facilitate the passage of air that we inhale or exhale from the nose and / or mouth towards the
lungs to breathe.

- Allow the passage of liquids or food from the mouth to the stomach.

- Produce the voice and sounds through the vibration of the vocal cords.
