I’ll have more on this, but I’ve noticed a lot of people calling them “dummy”, “dolls”, and/or “dummies”. What’s the difference? And why are they used the same way?
A ventriloquist dummy is a piece of cardboard that is made to look like a human. It is not supposed to be used in a practical way, yet many people think them to be.
A dummy is a “dummy” used to look like a person. A dummy was originally used as a form of entertainment but is now mostly used as a form of deception and intimidation as well. “Dummy” is a general term referring to any piece of cardboard that is in a human or fake humanoid form. A person who uses an “unrealistic” or unusual form of “dummy” is called a dummy artist.
Venting a dummy is similar to ventriloquism. Ventriloquism is an art form where an actor will project voice and motions with his body to simulate someone’s actions while pretending to do similar things. Both are forms of play. Venting a dummy is an art form using a cardboard dummy.

He tries to feel what a real person’s actions feel like to make it seem like he is doing their actions. Ventriloquists make use of objects, lights, people, etc. to bring an imaginary person to life. A ventriloquist could not, however, recreate the effect of feeling a person breathe, the size of their mouth, facial expressions, the size of their eyes, etc.
What are the differences between ventriloquism and ventriloqueness? Why is it better to use a ventriloquist dummy rather than ventriloquist?

To an untrained listener, it might seem to be a performance using sound effects, but it is actually meant to make
