Wait—I’m a Comm student! Acoustics? Physiology??? Importance of “why?” in the study of voice It is impossible to understand listeners’ behavior unless you know what information is available to them. How do speakers differ, and what does that mean in terms of how they sound? Presentation is geared to the generalist, not the scientist.
