the true vocal cords are covered with stratified squamous epithelium. paranasal sinuses are lined with ciliated, seudostratified columnar, as is the the trachea. nose, paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx. stratified squamous epithelium is found only on the true vocal cords, the oro- larnygo- pharynx, the anterior epiglottis, and upper half of the posterior epiglottis.
