    The hole in the middle of the neck is called the throat.

    The pharynx might be more biologically correct, as the oesophagus joins the throat (pharynx) to the stomach.

    The use of e instead of the oe dipthong is becoming accepted spelling these days, but for brevitys sake, we should refer to it as the upper alimentary canal :P ::) </smart@rse>

    Nope, unless you have a talking grinder. :)

    The larynx is the entrance to the trachea (air canal to the lungs) and is basically the voicebox. The pharynx is from the tongue to the epiglottis where it splits into the laarynx or the oesophagus.

    A pointless debate, as I think throat is probably the best term anyway.
