voiced: pronounced with regular vibration of the vocal folds (vocal cords) in the larynx (voicebox). (See the diagram of the principal organs of articulation.) Generally vowels are voiced (except when whispered), while consonants can be either voiced or voiceless. For example, the vowel i and the consonants b and d are voiced, while p and t are voiceless.
