WHAT KIND OF VOICE DO YOU HAVE?1. Do you whisper or boom?2. Are you monotonous or melodious?3. Is your voice a rain cloud or a rainbow?4. Do you have mumblitis?
5. How well do you articulate? Articulation - how distinctly you you formulate your words when you speak. - includes both how you pronounce individual words and how clearly you create speech sounds.Pronunciation is the formation and utterance of words. It is the product of correct sounds in the sequence of words.Enunciation refers to the fullness and clarity of speech sounds.
Clear articulation requires 3 conditions:1. The sound must be accurately formed.2. The sound must be sufficiently supported by the breath.3. The sound must be completely finished.
6. Do you trudge like a turtle or race like a rabbit?7. Do you agitate or orchestrate? Vocal variety is the way you use your voice to create interest, excitement, and emotional involvement. An inflection is a raised pitched- a high note to add emphasis to a word. A single change in inflection may change the meaning of a sentence. Example: She said she should sit . ( I did not say it.) She said she should sit. ( True. I heard her say it.) She said she should sit. ( No one else but she.) She said she should sit. She must do it.) She said she should sit. ( She must not stand.)

When the English tongue we speakWhy is break not rhymed with weak?Won’t you tell me why it’s trueWe say sew but also few?And the maker of a versecannot rhyme his horse with worse.Beard is not the same as heardcord is different from wordCow is cow and low is lowShoe is never rhymed with foeThink of hose and close and loseAnd think of goose and yet of choose
Think of comb and tomb and bombDoll and roll and home and someAnd since pay is rhymed with sayWhy not paid with said I pray?Think of blood and food and goodMould is not pronounced like couldWhy is it done but gone and lone?Is there any reason known?To sum it up it seems to meThat sounds and letters don’t agree.
