Make appropriate use of pauses.
Reduce hesitations. Flexible It helps to hold attention, clarify meaning, and to secure desired response. Flexibility of voice depends on the meaning and mood to be conveyed. Voice Production The production of speech requires the collaborative operation of four processes: respiration, phonation, resonation, and pronunciation. A. Respiration Sound waves occur only when the application of energy forces an object into vibration. The source of energy for the voice is the stream of the air exhaled from the lungs. Two Functions of Breathing Mechanism: 1. Breathing for life
2. Breathing for speech Controlled breathing enables a speaker to achieve better voice usage: 1. By helping to regulate force
2. By helping to achieve firmness
3. By helping to control timing and rate B. Phonation It is the process wherein words are created when exhaled air stirs the vocal folds into vibration. C. Resonation It is the process wherein sounds are amplified and enriched. D. Pronunciation After the sound waves have been produced at the larynx and resonated in the throat, mouth, and perhaps the nose, they must be modified by the articulators to become the various vowels and consonants of speech. When combined in proper sequence and given suitable stress, these sounds become the auditory symbols of our spoken language. The process of producing the sounds to from words is called the pronunciation.
