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.

Why care about voice in the first place? What can we tell about this person from the voice sample? How about this person? What would happen if you woke up sounding like this? How would this change the impression you convey to others?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
