2021.09.24 – 0267 – When Intonation Goes Wrong When Intonation Goes Wrong Later we will look at intonation, the lift or suppression of individual words and phrases to indicate significance. Mis-emphasis destroys the authority and believability of your delivery. Intonation is greatly misunderstood and badly taught – if at all. While researching cont…
 
2021.09.23 – 0266 – Un-Colouring Words And the counterbalance to colouring or lifting a word or phrase, is ‘un-colouring’ or dropping a word or phrase. It’s part of ‘throwing away’ unimportant information, and is just as important as highlighting the ‘best bits’. Without one, there would not be the other. People do not process every word you utter …
 
2021.09.22 – 0265 – The Intonation Colour Chart Intonational ‘colour chart’; There are four basic levels: Level 4 - Special Stress – more energy emphasis Level 3 - Primary Lift - slightly raised in range Level 2 - Home Base – your natural resting ‘mono-tone’ Level 1 - Finality - low pitch This is how that framework can be used: [1] · Statements of …
 
In this episode, we meet Steven from Ireland, and he tells us about an important Irish festival - St Patrick’s Day. While learning about this important day, we focus on using the present perfect with for and since. Coffee Break English can help you improve your English with short lessons - the perfect time to enjoy a cup of coffee while learning. T…
 
2021.09.21 – 0264 – Graduations of Intonations Intonation Gradations Intonation requires you to give the correct degree of colour to ‘key’ words or phrases in a sentence, to show which of several possible meanings is intended. ‘Colour’ is a nuanced combination of: · Pitch – when we change the inflection or tone of the word by lifting it (this happe…
 
2021.09.20 – 0263 – The Intonation Code So you will see by now that your intonation can greatly influence the meaning of the message and you have to select the weight of your intonation carefully to ensure that the correct information is communicated to your audience. Intonation is the code we have to unlock the meaning of what people ‘really’ mean…
 
2021.09.19 – 0262 – An Intonation Exercise You want another example? Try this: “He lost the point”. But depending how it is ‘intoned’ it could mean: · “He lost the point” – everyone else tried really hard, but that point loss? It was down to him. · “He lost the point” – we had all hoped that the point was going to be won, it was down to the wire, o…
 
2021.09.18 – 0261 – The Red Hat Mystery Those examples were with a single word, so now let’s try a similar exercise with the basic sentence “I didn’t say Roger took the red hat”. How we say each of those words, in relation to the others, helps explain more of meaning behind the statement than the actual words themselves. I didn’t say Roger took the…
 
2021.09.17 – 0260 – “Hello…” Intonation is what we all use naturally every day in our conversational speech. As native speakers of whatever language, we have the rhythms and flows, the up and downlifts, the speed, projections and pauses, all in-built. That’s because we have heard the lilt of the language from inside the womb and every day since. An…
 
2021.09.16 – 0259 – Intonation Illustrations Intonation illustrations Intonation is the ‘punctuation of the spoken word’ used to signpost meaning when we’re talking. Of course, in the written word there are various devices that can be used instead: “When did you get here?” Susan snapped, sarcastically. “SHUT UP!” he replied. To help the reader, the…
 
2021.09.15 – 0258 – The Goldilocks Rules Of Intonation Nuanced and natural The first thing to stress (!) is that intonation is usually a subtle blend of various vocal elements, nuanced and natural. It is usually not ‘stressing’, ‘emphasising’, ‘barking’ or ‘shouting’, all of which are the vocal equivalent of a thump on the table. And although we us…
 
In this week's episode of Coffee Break English, we’re in Australia with Matthew. He talks about Steve Irwin, the famous wildlife expert, and we learn about relative pronouns. Coffee Break English can help you improve your English with short lessons - the perfect time to enjoy a cup of coffee while learning. The course is presented in slow English w…
 
2021.09.14 – 0257 – My Guide To Reading Out Loud, Naturally Here is my guide on ‘how to read out loud naturally’[1] which I developed as a BBC news presenter and then went on to use while train colleagues in national and local stations across the UK. It’s a framework on how to vocalise various constructions of grammar, punctuation and logic which m…
 
2021.09.13 – 0256 - Weight And Pitch in Intonation An Introduction to Intonation Intonation is, then, the weight and pitch one puts on individual words or phrases that draw attention to their significance and thereby communicate the overall message. Correct intonation leads a listener through a story, with the reader an interpreter or trusted guide…
 
2021.09.12-0255 – Intonation Definitions Intonation – is the subtle combination of tone, pitch and volume that you give to individual words or phrases as part of your overall musicality of inflection – and that’s the point of this chapter. Therefore, I will refer to intonation rather than inflection as the way to read conversationally and with mean…
 
0254 – Inflection Definitions INFLECTION AND INTONATION DEFINITIONS Definitions for words surrounding different parts of speaking are many, varied and often interchangeable. For clarity I shall use: Inflection – the overall sound of a language. Listen to someone speaking in a language that you do not understand and the overall rise and fall of thei…
 
0253 – An Introduction To Intonation In this Intonation Section · How to recognize the principles of intonation used naturally in everyday speech · How to apply these principles in ‘unnatural’ scripted words, written by someone else · How to communicate the meaning of the reading – even with complicated content · How to speak naturally · How to mak…
 
0252 – Non-Word Sounds It’s not just words that are requested in voice overs and voice acting. As we just saw, there are sighs gasps and screams too. Here are a few more sounds which are often requested at sessions, and which might be worth you practicing: · burping · cheering · crying · drinking · gasping · laughing · sneezing / blowing nose Also …
 
0251 - How To Sound Happy And Friendly… And Sad When you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you. But what if they can't see you? What if they can just hear you? Smile and raise your eyebrows. That’s because smiling affects how we speak, to the point that listeners can identify the type of smile based on sound alone, according to a study by sci…
 
Welcome back to Coffee Break English! In this week's lesson, we meet Riaan from South Africa, who tells us all about Table Mountain. While discovering this natural landmark, we focus on dependent prepositions with verbs. Coffee Break English can help you improve your English with short lessons - the perfect time to enjoy a cup of coffee while learn…
 
0250 - Tone and Your Mood Your natural unforced vocal tone at any moment (and tone is different from ‘pitch’ remember) is partly a reflection of how you are feeling, your general mood, and physical and mental state. If you feel positive and upbeat, so will your voice. If your car broke down, the dog’s been sick on the cat and your wife is threateni…
 
0249 - A Change of Mood Those voicing commercials or longer presentations such as e-books or explainers will have to work to alter their ‘performance attitude’ during a script. That’s because: · The script will call for different ‘delivery feels’ to be reflected within the same read · A single ‘mood’ will be wearing on the presenter and the listene…
 
0248 - Brand Voices Earlier we looked at the different kinds of emotional voice tones you may be required to replicate in your script-reading and also mentioned the ‘mood’ of the overall project. Brands often create a ‘tone-of-voice’ for their product or service, to better explain their marketing focus for certain demographics. That could be the de…
 
0247 - Script Direction More clues to your tone of voice will of course come from the direction both written in your script and from your human director in the studio. It should also set out who you are speaking to, the answer to the cliché actor’s question “what’s my motivation?” as well as the mood of the overall project (see below) and the demog…
 
0246 - The Gravity > Levity Tonal Scale THE GRAVITY > LEVITY TONAL SCALE Let’s take that inexhaustive list again and re-work it so the emotions progress over time from a serious to a lighter emotion on our Gravity>Levity Scale. This is of course only my interpretation and you may have other thoughts. You will get further indication of the tone not …
 
2021.09.02-0245 – Onomatopoeia Occasionally you will find it appropriate to use words which, when you say them, sound like what they mean. “So why don’t you zzzzip up your new winter coat and…” “… and all fresssshhhhly delivered to your door.” “… with the smell of crisssp green apples.” “… relax in the luxurious bubbles and your tension will soak a…
 
0244 – I Love You “I love you” can be said in many different ways, but if you say it with the wrong tone for the moment, you may be in trouble… There will be clues in the script and the direction. If the intention is to excite someone, then sound excited. If you are talking about a miserable event, then say it in a downbeat tone. If you are using t…
 
Welcome to Season 2 of our Coffee Break English course! In this episode, we hear from Kate in the USA. She tells us the story behind the Statue of Liberty, one of New York’s most famous monuments. We also focus on the passive voice in the present simple and past simple. Coffee Break English can help you improve your English with short lessons - the…
 
0243 - The Message Gives The Voice Singing coach Judy Rodman suggests this exercise.[1] Sing or say the phrase “you're the reason I feel this way” and with the same seven words, intend to send these different messages to the listener: · “you're the reason I feel this way” (you make me happy) · “you're the reason I feel this way” (you made me angry)…
 
0242 – When tonal emotions clash Previously we looked at how a good understanding of vocabulary will help you as a broadcaster/podcaster, so you are better able to speak a script with significance – and we’ll come to much more about intonation and inflection later. But being a bit of a wordsmith will help you here as well: if you are in a recording…
 
0241 - Twenty-Two Tonal Emotions These aren’t by any means the only emotions which may be prompted by a script, but are here as a sample you can use in various rehearsal readings to explore your range. They are in alphabetical order. 1. bemused 2. bright 3. corporate 4. cynicism / doubt 5. discovery – “I just found this / had this thought!” 6. ener…
 
-0240 - TONE IN VOICE ACTING Whereas in newsreading you have to be more impartial, with commercials you are quite the opposite: most definitely partial! You want to persuade people to your point of view, to get them to, for example, buy the product or buy into your idea. The trouble is that many people get so focussed on reading a script that they …
 
0239 - More on changing ‘tonal tracks’ A TV game show or shopping channel may also have to ‘turn on a sixpence’ with the presenter’s tone: · “Congratulations! You’ve just won 50-thousand pounds!” (cheers, applause, music sting) “Now, are you ready to gamble that… for the chance to win 100-thousand pounds, by answering just one question correctly..?…
 
0238 -The tonal construct for a presenter There are then certain parameters for a news reader, but not so for a presenter. Those on the radio, TV or fronting a video will benefit from showing more, authentic emotional tone in their voice. But there again there are tricks and techniques in doing so. First, don’t forget what the emotion is that you w…
 
0237 – Tonal changes from heavy to light Serious/sad ­– another sad story from the ‘universal emotions’ file. A serious tone, perhaps tinged with a hint of resignation as if to say “everyone had not dare fear the worse but…”. If you were reading this on a station closer to this event, and perhaps had this story as a lead in the bulletin, the tone m…
 
0236 – Rehearse your tone with these real scripts Straightforward tone – Be careful. This is a political story, and even though it may look on the face of it as ‘good news’, it may be that the ‘devil is in the detail’ that the money has already been announced or there are caveats to the scheme. The government has announced a 172-million pound fundi…
 
0235 - Marking up a script for tonal changes You can mark your scripts with smiling or frowning emojis to remind you the kind of tone you need to adopt as you read it. Practicing appropriate tone As I said previously, one of your greatest assets in getting a better voice are your ears, so open your earlids and use them to listen to people around yo…
 
0234 - Working out appropriate emotional tone When you pre-read your script, work out the appropriate tone for the delivery of each story by asking yourself “How would I communicate this information if I was telling it to a friend in an interesting and committed way?” That goes for each item, and the tone may be substantially or subtly different fo…
 
0233 - Your start-of-bulletin tone And a quick thought: many news bulletins start with the reader saying “good morning” (or something similar), and all bulletins start with the most important story. As the most important is often also the most serious, possibly involving the loss of or threat to human life, be careful not to begin your update crass…
 
0232 - Emotional tone in the news as a story develops over time Let’s take another example. A toddler has been mauled by an out-of-control dog, and has died. You would likely read that with concern. Then a week later, something similar happens to another child. Is your concern more or less than previously. It’s happened again so do that make it mor…
 
0231 - Emotional tone within a story Beware of tonal shifts within a script. A story that starts “300-million pounds is being given to…” sounds a ‘good news’ story, but how it continues may require a slight tonal change by the reader: · “street parties for the king’s coronation…” · “abattoirs to dispose of diseased cattle…” Or one that starts off a…
 
0230 - Tonal changes within a bulletin Tone also affects how you read each different story. The top one usually has more seriousness, and the last one a lighter tone. A well-constructed bulletin usually has this kind of flow to it, with a variety of hard, middle and lighter stories.[1] But not always. It may be that your news format is to have spor…
 
0229 - Changing ‘tonal tracks’ As a presenter you may be required to present a story about a singing parrot one moment and then deliver breaking news of a terrorist attack. Each of these stories needs to be read in a different tone, which require you to swap tracks or gear from one tone to another, not only over the course of a bulletin, from one s…
 
0228 - Appropriate emotional tone in the news You would appear to be a robot or psychopath if you read every story with the same amount of ‘tone of voice’ – from a landslide burying children in a school to a tap-dancing ferret. You need to give appropriate emotional weight to the script, depending on its content and context. Although you should not…
 
0227 - Too little emotional tone in the news The requirement of balance leads to many news readers or broadcast journalists putting an emotional chasm between themselves and their story and such disassociation can signal to the listeners: · that the reader doesn’t care about the content - so they can be similarly indifferent to the information · th…
 
0226 - Tone In the News TONE IN THE NEWS In the UK and many other countries, broadcast news is different from the printed press in that news has to be fair, balanced and impartial. That even-handedness is not just what you say, but how you say it. Suggesting a personal view on what you are reading, by your tone of voice could be called editorialisi…
 
0225 - Auditory Disconnections We’ll look at the amount of tone and emotion a little later, but for now let’s examine a bit more, the claim that the words you say and the tone in which they are said, have to be congruent. Think of the phrase “I’m happy” and you’d expect it to be said in a happy tone, bright, light, smiling, laughing. If it’s said s…
 
0224 – Tone And Emotion “We often refuse to accept an idea merely because the tone of voice in which it has been expressed is unsympathetic to us.” Friedrich Nietzsche - German philosopher The right words alone won’t necessarily persuade. The tone of your voice matters too if your listeners are to believe what it is you are telling them. Some peopl…
 
223 - Pitch and Politicians That having been said, researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) found that political leaders with lower voices were perceived as more dominant and attractive. Conversely, those who spoke with higher frequencies were viewed as submissive and benevolent.[1] Participants rated politicians’ voices with…
 
0222 – Pitch And Perception Pitch and perception In the past, society has judged people according to the pitch of their voice. Hopefully the days are gone, but even in the recent past, women with a high pitch may have been perceived by some as an ‘airhead’, a man with a lighter voice perhaps as effeminate. Conversely, a woman with a low voice was o…
