Production of the signals of any language must to some extent depend on the modality of that production. The vocal apparatus can produce only a limited range of all the sounds that a human ear can detect, and there is certainly a limit to the possible duration and sequencing of these sounds. Similarly, the production on language signals must be related to the perceptual system receiving them.
