Excerpt from How to Speak: Exercises in Voice Culture and Articulation

Because the low tones are less conspicuous than the high ones, the public tolerates a quality in the speaker''s voice that they could not endure in a singer''s; but unpleasant voices in the school and in the home wear upon the nerves of listeners, whether they are aware of it or not. Many mothers and teachers who wonder at the restlessness of children near the close of the day might find the explana tion in the quality of their own voices. Foreigners often remark upon this, criticizing the American voice as high-pitched and rasping, nasal and etri dent, croaking and thick.
