Proposed mechanisms for single-mass oscillation in the vocal tract are examined critically. There are two areas that distinguish single-mass models: in the sophistication of the air flowmodeling near the oscillator and whether or not oscillation depends on acoustic feedback. Two recent models that do not depend on acoustic feedback are examined in detail. One model that depends on changing flow separation points is extended with approximate calculations.
