1. On either side of the median glossoepiglottic fold are the valleculae.
2. Raising the mucosa of the piriform recess is the recurrent laryngeal nerve.
3. The oblique line of the thyroid cartilage is a site of attachment for the superior constrictor muscle.
4. The stylohyoid ligament attaches to the greater horn of the thyroid cartilage.
5. The lateral cricoarytenoid muscle attaches to the vocal process of the cricoid cartilage.
6. The posterior cricoarytenoid muscle attaches to the muscular process of the arytenoid cartilage.
7. The epiglottic cartilage is stabilized to both the hyoid bone and the thyroid cartilage.
8. The cricothyroid muscle is innervated by the recurrent laryngeal nerve and lowers the pitch of the voice.
