Articulate Voice : Introduction to Voice and Diction - 4th edition

Articulate Voice : Introduction to Voice and Diction (ISBN10: 0205380328; ISBN13: 9780205380329)
ISBN13: 978-0205380329
ISBN10: 0205380328

Summary: Taps into the most current research to clearly and concisely deliver the basics on voice production and techniques for improving pitch, rate, volume, and quality.

One reviewer praised, "This is a rare find in comparison to other voice and diction textbooks." Another calls The Articulate Voice "a model of clarity and concision."

Features
  • As opposed to text
    s geared more specifically toward the stage, speech, and ESL students, this text serves as a guide for all students studying or needing guidance in voice and diction.
  • "Try This" drills at the end of each chapter give readers a chance to test out speech exercises and help them easily integrate information into everyday communication.
  • The text specifies appropriate production of American English phonemes. Sound recognition practice materials in Chapters 9 and 10 and at the back of the book give students and instructors a tool for assessing each student's use of phonemes.
  • The flexible arrangement of content enables professors to assign chapters in any order.
  • Numerous exercises and materials are integrated throughout to teach learning by doing and to teach students why voice improvement is vital to "real-life" issues, such as presenting a positive business or personal image.
  • "Focus Message" sections, geared toward ESL, broadcasting, and acting students, appear at the end of each chapter and give special reading audiences goal-directed techniques and tips.
  • The jargon-free text not only describes voice production, but it also explains its companion component: hearing.
New To This Edition
  • A comprehensive section on stage fright and its impact in vocal performance has been added at the request of professors (Ch. 1).
  • An expanded section on vocal health now includes coverage on maintaining a healthy voice and dealing with vocal abuse (Ch. 2).
  • Chapters have been reordered to present language information early, based on reviewer feedback.
  • Pronunciation keys identify chapter terminology to enhance student understanding of the key topics of the chapter.
  • A list of commonly mispronounced words (Appendix 2) and a vocabulary builder list (Appendix 3) have been added to assist students in learning diction.
